MLAs take up key cabinet spots All four MLAs with strong Langley connections are sitting at Victoria’s cabinet table. by Matthew Claxton

Both of Langley’s MLAs, plus two more with Langley connections, will be at the cabinet table in Victoria. Premier Christy Clark announced the new cabinet Friday afternoon in Vancouver. Rich Coleman, longtime MLA for Fort Langley-Aldergrove, is back in his post as deputy premier. He will also be responsible for housing, and is Minister for Natural Gas Development. The promise of jobs and revenues from liquified natural gas from B.C.’s north was one of the Liberals’ main campaign planks. Coleman himself has been a major spokesperson for the project, talking it up as far back as June of last year in a speech to the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce. Coleman was deputy premier before the election, and has

Cops for Cancer

No pain, no gain for cancer society High school students raised more than $2,300 to ensure head shavings for three adults.

by Matthew Claxton

An Aldergrove vice principal and a pair of Langley Mounties went under the clippers and hot wax on Friday to benefit the Cops for Cancer bike ride. On Friday, Aldergrove Community Secondary vice principal Mike Carlyle announced that students there had raised more than $2,300 for the Canadian Cancer Society charity. Carlyle then submitted to having his head shaved, along with one leg waxed. He’d agreed to losing his leg hair if the students at Aldergrove won a contest with H.D. Stafford to see which school could raise the most cash. The last of three to get his hair trimmed, Carlyle’s hair broke the clippers, and he was left with a patchy look. Also getting shaved or waxed were Const. Janet Northrup and Const. Craig Van Herk. “Anything that raises money for cancer,” said Northrup. She and Van Herk are both liaison officers with Langley schools, and work with vulnerable teens across the community. Northrup went from hair past her shoulders to a very short buzz cut. It’s the second time she’s done a head shave for cancer, having last cropped her hair in 2007. She’s been letting it grow out since then. Northrup finds giving up her hair easier than the long ride the Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley team will be undertaking this fall. The team of law enforcement personnel, drawn from Delta, Surrey, White Rock, Langley, Abbotsford, and Chilliwack, will do a nine-day bike ride through the Fraser Valley to raise funds to fight childhood cancers. For many of the riders and supporters, it’s a personal cause. “I lost my sister to breast cancer,” Northrup said. Van Herk has been a rider, volunteer organizer and tireless booster for the Cops for Cancer

A sizeable hidden bunker, which RCMP say is linked to the Hells Agnels, was for growing pot for personal use, said the property occupant.


Dance Showcase The fairy-tale story by Italian author Gianni Rodari tells of the adventures of the Little Onion boy, who fights the unjust treatment of his fellow vegetable folk (his little girlfriend Radish, old Mr Pumpkin, handyman Master Grape) by the fruit “aristocracy” (foppish Prince Lemon, martinet Signor Tomato and the Count Cherry).


Bunkers were his own stash

A Langley man says underground bunkers were for growing his own personal pot. by Glenda Luymes Special to the Langley Advance

A Langley man claims he’s been mislabelled as a gangster by police who found 430 marijuana plants in an underground bunker on his hobby farm. Jeromey James, who rents the property on 56th Avenue at 270th Street, admits he smokes a lot of pot. “Personal consumption. Most of the marijuana was for personal consumption,” he told The Province Friday. But police aren’t buying that. Not only was the bunker sophisticated and complex, the grow-op itself was likely worth millions of dollars, said a spokesman for B.C.’s Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit. “It’s highly unlikely [that it could be for personal consumption],” said Sgt. Lindsey Houghton, before adding “Actually, that’s completely unbelievable.” Houghton also said police still believe the grow-op was linked to the Hells Angels motorcycle gang. James said that assertion, made to media Monday when police released information about the recent raid, has caused huge problems for him. “The police painted a picture to the media and now people think I’m some kind of gangster.” He said every fifth vehicle that passes

the property stops to stare. Even worse, his home has been broken into twice. Thieves made off with his TV and Xbox, as well as some PartyLite candles that his girlfriend sells. “People read that there’s this sophisticated underground bunker, and they think this home must be full of money and jewelry,” he said. “They’ve taken the pictures off the walls.” James was one of four people arrested on June 1 when police, acting on a tip, swooped in and found the grow-op. They also found eight pit bulls – mostly puppies – and five Chihuahuas, which James said his girlfriend breeds and sells. The farm was also home to three sheep and a pig. The marijuana was found in five buried shipping containers, connected by holes cut in their ends and a raised walkway. A rusted old manure spreader covered a muffler. A 10-inch natural gas pipeline had been cut into, with gas diverted to feed a $100,000 industrial generator. James wouldn’t comment on the growop itself. But police think it had been running for at least a couple of years, similar, but not connected, to four underground Mission grow-ops that were previously discovered. James has not been charged, although Houghton said charges could still be forthcoming. Earlier, police said they believed the people arrested at the grow-op were not directly involved in the operation of the bunkers or the harvest.

Langley bus ridership jumps Ridership on transit is up in the Langley area, a new TransLink study says. by Matthew Claxton

A new TransLink report says that service to the South of the Fraser area is improving and costs per capita are going down. Over the last four years, the number of boardings per revenue hour – the number of people getting on a bus during the whole time it’s on the road – has gone up 56 per cent in the area from North Delta to Langley. The study looked at statistics up to 2012. The percentage of capacity filled up has gone to 69 per cent, a 27 per cent increase over four years, and the cost per passenger has dropped to $1.84, down 14 per cent. Vancouver, the busiest area for transit use, has 79 boardings per revenue hour,

has a capacity of 117 per cent, and it costs $1.08 per passenger. In general, Burnaby and New Westminster, the North Shore, and Richmond have higher transit uses and lower costs per rider than the South of the Fraser, but the North Delta to Langley area still does better than LadnerTsawwasen, the Northeast Sector, which includes the Tri-Cities, and Maple RidgePitt Meadows. Routes vary widely in how much they are used. A new route that connects Langley to White Rock drew 183,000 boardings, but remained low capacity and high cost per passenger. The 531 White Rock CentreWillowbrook route filled 27 per cent of capacity and cost $9.54 per passenger. TransLink’s report suggests the offpeak hours could be switched over to the use of the smaller community shuttle vehicles. System-wide, the trend is moving towards increasing productivity and decreasing costs per rider, the report indicates.

Risk takers targeted Police gave out more than 100 tickets in a single day during a recent crackdown. by Matthew Claxton

Police officers undertook a traffic blitz, aiming to catch high risk drivers on Friday around Langley. Province-wide this month, police around the province are looking to crack down on drivers who cause crashes at intersections. There are 182 crashes a day in intersections in the Lower Mainland, said Leanne Cassap of ICBC. A full 73 per cent of crashes in the region take place at intersections. Behaviours police were looking at include failing to yield, following too closely, speeding, improperly passing, and ignoring traffic lights and stop signs. Police set up a special operation at the intersection of the Fraser Highway and the Langley Bypass near the Willowbrook Shopping Centre. Over the course of a single shift, including the officers at the targeted corner and at other locations, 102 tickets were handed out, said Cassap. While the police had a list of high risk behaviours they were looking for, they gave out tickets for any infraction they saw. That included a number of tickets for driving while using a cellphone, driving without a seatbelt, failing to have the new driver or learner’s stickers, driving while prohibited, and several stops involving drinking and driving, or having drugs in the car.

Wars thrive on forgetfulness

Another D-Day anniversary has come and gone. This one was the 69th, and generally, not too much ado was made of it. The in-between anniversaries get less and less attention. The Second World War is now far enough in the past that serious note is only taken every five years – soon we’ll only bother at 10-year intervals… or not at all. Anybody remember the end date of the Napoleonic Wars? Do you even remember the year the little tyrant was finally taken down? Perhaps a handful of history majors do, but wars tend to lose their lustre after a 100 years or so, after all those who experienced them have passed into faded memories themEmail with selves. But that’s precisely why we should remember important dates like June 6, 1944. And we should forestall the growing misconception that that date marks the end of the Second World War. It wasn’t the end at all. Not even close. Indeed, it barely marked the beginning of the end stage of the war. The trek across Europe from the beaches of Normandy claimed tens of thousands of lives over the course of nearly a year, before the European armistices were signed – Italy on April 29, 1945, and the rest of Western Europe on May 7, 1945. Tens of thousands more had yet to die before the curtain was drawn on the Pacific theatre on Sept. 2, 1945. Those are dates that hardly anyone brings immediately to mind. Perhaps they are more mundane than the date that launched the largest-ever sea-borne military assault – an assault that was not anywhere near as successful as we are commonly led to believe through movies and popular history. But even the attention that D-Day commands is dwindling, as forgetfulness seems to grow… along with war. – B.G.

Letters to the Editor

Campbell Valley Park

Speedway best in past tense

Dear Editor, Langley Speedway is in the past, and it should stay there. While some car enthusiasts are excited by the concept of resurrecting a racetrack in South Langley, I want to remind folks why locals wanted it gone in the first place. Reviving the historic speedway sounds glamorous in theory, especially in a community that goes out of its way to pay homage to the automobile with events such as the annual charity Langley Good Times CruiseIn, as well as countless smaller show ’n’ shine shows, and the existence of multiple local car clubs. But don’t forget the flip side to this automotive dilemma. The problem back then was not having the races, even though the noise would invariably carry for miles. The issue was in the behaviour of the people who came out for those races. I remember – being a 208th Street resident – that the roadways in to South Langley were like a raceway of sorts. Speeding and dangerous driving was a con-

stant – not by the racers, but by the spectators. Every Sunday, area residents knew to stay off the roads, if possible. to the We all breathed a sigh of relief when we learned the speedway was going. Honestly, at first, I didn’t believe it could be true. But it was, and I know I wasn’t the only one who was elated. Now that the speedway is gone, let’s keep it gone. I just want people to understand that the opposition to restoring the speedway in the middle of Campbell Valley Regional Park – both past and present – is not just from the horse people. Sure, as an avid walker and an area resident, I share their concerns about the impact on the park. But, there are other reasons to keep the speedway in the past. Let’s learn from this historic lesson. Say “no” to resurrecting the local speedway. Keep it in the past, where it belongs. Let race enthusiasts enjoy the facilities available in Mission. Marge Shiell, Langley

Heroic tale tribute to bravery

Dear Editor, I meet a young man of about 14 years most mornings as he walks to his school, and we always exchange pleasantries. On June 6, I asked him if he realized one of the great battles of the Second World War, D-Day, was enacted on that date 69 years ago. He knew nothing about it. I note that page one of the June 6 edition of the Langley Advance featured a story of John Palen of Langley who took part in that epic action to re-take the European continent. His gripping story, to be continued [in today’s edition on page A10], is a tale of heroism in enemy skies as a tail gunner. I hope my young friend reads this tale, as it is a tribute to the brave men who fought that epic battle. It is brilliantly told by an excellent journalist, Mathew Claxton. Mike Harvey, Langley

I will send our invitation to Mayor Corrigan, MLA Fassbender, and others. I should warn Mayor Corrigan, though, Mr. Fassbender has won the event twice, now. There will be a training and practice session prior to the main event, at the Langley Rod and Gun Club. One thing: this is a fun event, no politics, please (although that is not mandatory). Blank ammunition is all that is used, and the targets are four-inch-diameter balloons. Competitors use old west-style six-guns, timed by modern electronics clocks calibrated in thousandths of a second. MLA Mary Polak and MP Mark Warawa are the defending champions from 2012. May the best man and/or woman win! D. Robinson, vice-chair, WFDA area 20 (B.C.)


Legal grow-ops a bigger problem

Dear Editor, While the grow-op discovered in Langley [Pot bunker uncovered, June 6, Langley Advance] gained news coverage for its size and sophistication, it is the least of people’s concerns in Langley. Right now there are many “legal” grow-ops in Langley in residential neighbourhoods. Legal grow-ops operate in the same clandestine manner as illegal grow-ops, where growers exhaust the capacity of the electric supply in the neighbourhood, create a fire hazard, and aren’t susceptible to any building codes. They are susceptible to grow-

rips, in which organized crime breaks into the residence and takes the plants by force. But the biggest difference is that a legal grow-op has immunity to any warrant from law enforcement to search the property. The people of Langley understand the need for medicinal marijuana, and they couldn’t care less if people use it recreationally, but the lack of oversight has us fearing for our safety, especially when organized crime gets the wrong address in a routine grow-rip across the street from an elementary school.

D-Day anniversary

Fear was always present, says war veteran

John Palen managed to survive a terrifying war. by Matthew Claxton

In the first part of this story, in our June 6 edition, RCAF veteran John Palen talked about training to become a tailgunner in a Second World War bomber. On his second mission, his aircraft was badly damaged and limped back to an emergency landing on a fighter plane base. “It took us three attempts to finally land before we made it,” said John Palen. They had to try to stop. With the short runway, designed for the fighter planes, that proved a challenge.

“We just kept going right across the fields,” said Palen. The plane finally came to a halt when it hit a ditch, with its nose down and its tail way up in the air. “I had a heck of a job getting out of this turret,” Palen said. As the emergency crews rushed towards them, they seemed to think they’d be pulling a dead man out of the rear turret, based on the damage to the plane, Palen said. He wasn’t even seriously hurt, but he came close. He pulled sharp fragments of shrapnel out of his flight suit after he got out of the plane. “That was one of my worst trips,” he said. It wasn’t the first time he would lose a parachute,

though. He saw a second burn up on another operation. Later the turret crews were given seat-tight parachutes like those used by fighter pilots. “I felt a lot better when I had my parachute with me,” he said. From November 1943 to April 1944, Palen and his crew served with 77 Squadron. “We did 18 operations on 77 Squadron, and then we were asked if we would like to volunteer for the Pathfinders, which we agreed to do,” Palen said. They went to a special school for a month, then joined 635 Squadron at Downham Market. He would serve with that unit through D-Day. “We completed our 40th operation there,” said Palen. In total, he flew 58 missions. Pathfinders had the responsibility of dropping coloured flares that would guide in the other bombers in a formation and show them were to attack. Then they had to drop their own bombs. All but four to six of Palen’s operations took place at night, and while he fired at enemy planes, he doesn’t think he ever shot one down. Even if he did hit one, he has no way of knowing. The only way to see in the darkness would be if it burst into flames, he said. With the Pathfinders, Palen’s crew, flying mostly in the newer Lancaster bombers now, bombed railways, oil depots, and factory areas. Around May of 1944, the number of missions increased. On the night of June 5, Palen and his crew found out why. “We were told there was a large armada crossing

John Palen can still pick out the faces of friends and comrades from the 77th Squadron of RAF Bomber Command. Palen left his home in Ontario in 1942 to become a tailgunner, flying a total of 58 missions over Europe before and after D-Day. the Channel,” he said. D-Day was June 6, when the American, British, and Canadian forces stormed five beaches in Normandy. Palen’s plane had engine trouble that morning and didn’t fly on the first day, but it was in the air on June 7, and for several days after that, hitting targets on the French coast. One of his memorable operations was an attack on a buzz bomb storage depot in the French town of Trossy St. Maximin. Bomber Command had tried to hit the area twice with night raids, but the pilots couldn’t even find the location. Finally, the pulled together more than 60 Pathfinders for a single mission and sent them up on Aug. 4, 1944. The bombing was successful, but the lead aircraft, commanded by Canadian Ian Bazalgette, was heavily damaged by

antiaircraft fire. Bazalgette, a Calgarian, ordered his four uninjured crew members to bail out, then tried to land the burning plane with two injured men still aboard. He successfully set down in a field, but the plane exploded, killing all three men. Bazalgette was awarded the Victoria Cross for his bravery. A few weeks ago, Palen visited Nanton, Alberta, to see a restored Lancaster painted with the colours of Bazalgette’s aircraft in memory of the pilot. After his 58 operations, Palen was told he had done his bit and was discharged. Despite flying through much of 1944, Palen never found going up on an operation became easy. “You’re always scared,” he said. “Anyone who says they’re not scared, I don’t think they’re telling the truth.”

Amazingly, he and the rest of his crew were never seriously injured. During the Second World War, 55,573 members of Bomber Command became casualties, more than 44 per cent of personnel. Palen left the RCAF with a Distinguished Flying Cross, which he wears on Remembrance Day, in honour of his comrades. Palen graduated from the University of Toronto, and spent his career managing civic facilities. He moved to Langley last year to be closer to his family. He has three children in B.C., nine grandchildren, and 10 greatgrandchildren. Trinity Western University professor Jef Gibbons has been working on a video interview with Palen. It will be available on his website at

Car thief nabbed in 17 minutes It took all of five minutes after the dispatch for the Langley RCMP to spot a suspected carjacker. by Matthew Claxton

A man who allegedly stole a driver’s car at knifepoint didn’t get far before he was arrested by Langley RCMP on June 8. At 7:25 p.m. that evening, the first call to the police came from a concerned bystander, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the local Mounties. He saw a woman accosted by a man in the 5600 block of 200th Street. She dropped her keys, and the man picked them up and drove off in her car. A few minutes later, the woman herself called the police. The man had threatened her with a pocket knife and demanded

the keys, she said. She gave police a description of the carjacker, and said he had taken her blue 2008 Hyundai Accent and headed north on 200th Street. Five minutes later, a member of the Langley Core Enforcement Team, which primarily handles cases in downtown Langley City, spotted a Hyundai matching the description on the Bypass, said Marks. She followed the vehicle to the 20600 block of Logan Avenue. When the driver parked, she used her vehicle to block the car in. She ordered the suspect out of the car, and he was arrested at 7:42 p.m. A 28-year-old Surrey man has been held in custody and was scheduled to appear in provincial court on Monday, with police recommending charges of robbery, uttering threats, assault with a weapon, and possession of stolen property.

Church party for Matt. 25 A Langley City church is using Father’s Day as a chance to reach out to others.

by Heather Colpitts

Tu esday, June 11, 2013

Matthew 25:31-46 through good deeds and community outreach. The Bible passage deals with people at the final judgement and whether they acted in Christlike ways in their dealings with others – “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.”

During the morning, members of the church will be in the community handing out bottles of water and an invitation to the Father’s Day Community Celebration & BBQ. Other church members will be out visiting the sick at Langley Memorial Hospital and others will be visiting some of the inmates of a Fraser Valley prison. The church meets at Nicomekl Elementary and dur-

ing the afternoon on Sunday, the school grounds will be used for a free clothing giveaway starting at 2:30 p.m. There will be live music and testimonies on an outdoor stage starting at 3 p.m. The special Father’s Day service begins at 4 p.m. and the afternoon ends with a barbecue at 5:30 p.m. Anyone wanting more information can contact 604-514-4663 or visit www.

Canine Scent Work is one of the fastest growing dog sports in North America. Join us at Tisol Langley for a Scent Work demo with Terry Blaine of The Dog Ranch and Lisa Davies of Pawsitively Canine

Saturday, June 15th from 2:00 - 4:00 Canine Scent Work is so popular because dogs and handlers of all abilities can do it. Dogs have an amazing scenting ability - it’s far beyond human capacity. This exciting new detection-style sport is designed to develop a dog’s natural scenting ability by using their desire to hunt and their love of toys, food and exercise. It’s a great way for your dog to have fun, build confidence and burn lots of mental and physical energy. Bring your dogs and let them have fun playing Scent Games!

Jr. Thunder back on track after axing Timbermen

by Troy Landreville

The Langley Jr. Thunder aimed for a bounce back effort Sunday at the Langley Events Centre. The local juniors got just that. Johnny Pearson scored six times in the first two periods to lead the Jr. Thunder to an 11-4 thrashing of the visiting Nanaimo Timbermen.

The win snapped the local juniors’ two-game losing skid while improving their record to 7-4 in the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League. The Timbermen, who suffered their seventh consecutive setback, dropped to 1-9. Jr. Thunder head coach Jake Elliott said his team needed a better effort after laying what he believed to be an odoriferous egg three days earlier during an 8-6 home-floor loss to the Delta Islanders. “We had a very disappointing game and effort all around on Thursday,” Elliott said. “Even to the point where I didn’t go into the dressing room after the game, just so I didn’t say something I was

going to regret.” The Jr. Thunder looked like a different team Sunday. “It started with the warm-up,” Elliott said. “You could see the energy and the focus and it carried on.” As for the Timbermen, they are better than what their record shows, in Elliott’s opinion. “Nanaimo’s record doesn’t indicate how good of a team they are,” Elliott said. “They’ve lost a lot of one-goal games and they’re a good up-andcoming team.” The first two periods were pure dominance for the Jr. Thunder, who led 9-1 after 40 minutes while outshooting the Timbermen 54-16. Despite being outshot 18-8 in the third period, Nanaimo edged Langley 32 in goals. In total, the Jr. Thunder threw a whopping 72 shots towards Timbermen goaltender Peter Dubenski. “I don’t think it’s a big secret that Dubenski is one of the better goalies in the league,” Elliott said. “If not for him, the scoreline would have been even more lopsided than it was.” The 1995-born Pearson had a game to remember by accounting for more than half of his team’s offensive output. “His biggest asset is his shot,” Elliott said, regarding the lanky, 6’3” lefthander. “He has a hard shot but he also has an accurate shot. It’s a good trait to have as a shooter, to be able to adjust to what the goalie is going to do instead of having a favourite one or two corners to shoot at.” Also scoring for the Jr. Thunder were James Rahe and Brett Dobray (who also added three assists each), Adam Will,

A Nanaimo team that has just one win this season was an ideal remedy for a Langley team looking to snap a two-game slide.

Henare was Langley’s other goal scorer. “In my heart [I believe] we should be 9-2,” Elliott said, of the Jr. Thunder’s current record. “To be frank, early in year we gave away a game to Poco [an 11-9 loss to the Saints back on May 9] and on Thursday we had a team right for the picking and we couldn’t finish the deal. That’s four points I wish we could get back but there’s nothing we can do about that.” The Jr. Thunder will look to build from Sunday’s win when it hosts the New Westminster Salmonbellies Thursday at the LEC. Game time is 8 p.m.

After three straight wins to open the Western Lacrosse Association, the Langley Thunder has hit a couple of road bumps. The defending WLA champions now find themselves in the middle of the pack early in the season.

The Thunder owns a 3-2 record, putting the locals in a three-way tie for second place with the New Westminster Salmonbellies (3-4) and resurgent Burnaby Lakers (3-3) in the WLA standings. The Victoria Shamrocks and Maple Ridge Burrards sit tied atop the WLA, each with 5-2 marks.

The Coquitlam Adanacs (2-4) and Nanaimo Timbermen (1-5) take up the bottom two spots in the seven-team loop. Last Wednesday at the Langley Events Centre, the Lakers edged the Thunder 9-8. The Thunder found itself down 3-0 after the first period and 5-1 at

one point of the middle frame before mounting a comeback to tie the game at 5-5. The Lakers responded with the final two goals of the second period to move ahead 7-5. With Burnaby ahead 9-6, the Thunder came within a goal with backto-back markers from Joel McCready and Alex Turner (his fourth of the night), but that was as close as the hosts would get. Scott Jones scored four times for the Lakers. The Lakers were winless at 0-3 going into the game, but since beating the Thunder, have reeled off two more victories to even their record. Judging from their last two games, including an 8-7 loss to the Victoria Shamrocks May 31 in Victoria, the Thunder are looking to veer in a winning direction. The senior A squad will look to bump its two-game slide tomorrow night (June 12) with a home game against Nanaimo. Game time at the LEC is 7 p.m.

Annual run

Torch burns for Special Olympics

by Troy Landreville

When the B.C. Law Enforcement Torch Run made its way through Langley on June 4, it had extra meaning on a local level. The run supporting Special Olympics visited the community that will host the 2013 Special Olympics BC (SOBC) Summer Games July 11-14. During the province-wide run, law enforcement personnel from more than 30 B.C. communities are carrying a message of respect and dignity for Special Olympics. The Fraser Valley/Lower Mainland portion of the run – which took place June 4-7 – covered 15 communities, from Chilliwack to West Vancouver. The 2013 torch run in B.C. involves hundreds of law enforcement personnel from a range of agencies, who take part in fun runs and festivities alongside Special Olympics athletes, raising funds and awareness for SOBC. Roughly 400 RCMP members are lacing up for the 2013 event, joining members of a range of agencies

including municipal police departments, the Transit Police Service, the Justice Institute of British Columbia, and the Canada Border Services Agency. Sgt. Gerard Sokolowski with Langley RCMP Traffic Services took part in the local leg that started at the RCMP detachment in Murrayville and ended at Douglas Park Community School. RCMP members on motorcycles led a convoy that covered View more than five kilometres. video Sokolowski has been with the RCMP for with nearly 24 years in two provinces and has participated in the torch run nearly every or online year, he said. “It gives an opportunity for us to recognize the athletes,” Sokolowski said. “It’s a great thing, giving these young adults and children an opportunity to be involved in sports. Hopefully they maintain it through their lives. We’re there to support them, show them that we respect what they do, and if we can assist them in any way, we’ll do it.” Sokolowski ran alongside Langley Special Olympics track and field athlete Pat Johnson. “He’s in great shape. He’s involved in the 3,000, 5,000, 10,000 [metres] and also in discus, and he told me he was involved in that all in one day,” Sokolowski said. “Being a runner myself, to run [that much] is a phenomenal amount of work. That’s close to being a half marathon.” • More online at
