This year’s Douglas Day celebration at the Fort Langley National Historic Site was a true family affair. On Saturday, the Fort marked the day 155 years ago when Sir James Douglas proclaimed British Columbia a crown colony in Fort Langley’s Big House. Douglas Day celebrations mark the Nov. 19, 1858, occasion. An associated banquet honouring local pioneers is taking place on Tuesday (today). This year’s event at the fort– which included a noon-hour reenactment of the original proclamation – honoured the Caribbeanborn Douglas, who was British Columbia’s first governor. Douglas was born to a Scottish merchant and a Creole woman from Barbados, and later grew up in present-day Guyana on the northeastern shore of South America. The event also celebrated the first lieutenant-governor, Barbados-born Colonel Richard Moody. Marilyn Moseley, Consul for Barbados, spoke during the ceremony and said, “Our Prime Minister sends his greetings and for him, he’s saying that it is amazing that here in British Columbia and Fort Langley we would recognize the history of a gentleman like Col. Douglas, whose mother was born in

Driver in fatal crash pleads guilty Glen Edward Theriault be sentenced next year. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The dump truck driver who caused a fatal crash in Langley more than two years ago has pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death. Glen Edward Theriault entered his plea Friday in Surrey Provincial Court. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 14, 2014. On Jan. 18, 2011, Theriault was behind the wheel of a dump truck, towing a pup trailer, that police say crossed the centre line and slammed into a smaller truck, instantly killing the driver. The crash claimed the life of Jim “D.K.” Neiss, a 59-year-old school bus driver for the Langley district.

Firefighter’s memory honoured at annual clinic

The annual Ron Dunkley Memorial Blood Donor Clinic was Nov. 14. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

The injury and subsequent death of their son opened the eyes of Sandy and Gene Dunkley to the value of blood donations. Their son, Langley City firefighter Ron Dunkley, was struck by a train in Seattle in November 2010 and died 60 days later. On his first night in hospital, he required 36 units of blood.

To honour Ron, his fire colleagues organized a blood donor clinic, the third annual clinic once again bringing out large numbers of donors at a time of year when people’s attention becomes increasingly focused on the holidays. Throughout the Christmas season, blood donations dwindle but need does not. Now Sandy Dunkley donates every couple of months, as often as Canadian Blood Services guidelines allow and is overwhelmed by the support the community has shown. At the clinic people could fill out a new kind of registration form so that when-

ever they donate blood, it will be part of the tally for the Ron Dunkley campaign. It’s one way the family is ensuring something good comes from this tragedy. Another way has been the creation of the Ron Dunkley Memorial Society. They along with fire service friends, and a cross section of community volunteers sit on the board. It’s aim – to support causes such as the Firefighter’s Burn Unit, Honour House, the Firefighters’ International Cancer Fund, Vancouver General Hospital Burn Ward, Harborview, Muscular Dystrophy Foundation, and other charities.

Gene and Sandy Dunkley, the parents of deceased firefighter Ron Dunkley, were at the memorial blood donor clinic in his honour on Nov. 14. Heather Colpitts Langley Advance

Pipeline protests target MP Thieves telling The move to expand oil pipelines drew protests.

More than 50 Langley residents came out to oppose pipeline expansion through Langley and other parts of Canada during a series of nationwide protests on Saturday. The Defend Our Climate, Defend Our Communities day of action included a protest outside of Langley MP Mark Warawa’s office in Murrayville. Local volunteers organized the event with the support of national groups like Leadnow.ca. Protestors were opposed to both the expansion of pipelines, more oil production in Alberta’s tar sands, and climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions. “People of the Fraser Valley are increasingly aware that if these pipelines are built, they will

Several dozen residents opposed to oil pipeline and drilling expansion protested at Langley MP Mark Warawa’s office on Saturday. allow for the reckless expansion of the tar sands and make it almost impossible for Canada to do its part to stop runaway climate change,” said local organizer A.J. Klein. “I hope that this sends a strong message to the Clark and Harper governments.” Another nearby protest took place on Barnston Island, in the Fraser River near the Langley-Surrey border. The Barnston event involved members

of the Katzie First Nation, which has reserves on Barnston Island and in Langley on the Fraser shoreline. “The event at the Katzie First Nation was a highlight for me,” said Tricia Carpenter of Walnut Grove. “I was deeply moved by a the words of one of the elders who talked of the importance of the river to his people. We had a wonderful visit with them, enjoyed their warm hospitality, shared a meal

and committed to standing with them in the future as we fight Kinder Morgan in the Fraser Valley.” “We saw communities opposed to reckless oil pipeline expansion in the west uniting with communities in the east and the north to defend our climate and communities,” said Maggie Knight of Leadnow.ca. “We are seeing the growing impacts of more extreme weather across the world, and the people who stood up today want Canada to be part of the solution.” One of the major oil pipelines joining Alberta to the coast runs through Langley. Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline passes through north Langley, and the company has plans to add capacity to the pipeline to pump more oil to its Burnaby refinery. The plan has drawn criticism from local environmentalists.

‘Uncle’ has his motorbike seized

Riding a motorcycle on a sidewalk in front of an officer led to the seizure of a vehicle. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The Langley RCMP is looking for the rightful owner of a dirt bike that was seized from a man riding it on urban sidewalks. On Nov. 5, a Langley Mountie saw a dirt bike heading through the intersection at 204th Street and 64th

Avenue, said Cpl. Holly Marks. The rider headed through on a green light, then drove up onto the sidewalk on the motorcycle. The officer turned on his lights and sirens and pulled the rider over about half a block away, in the 6300 block of 204th. The rider had no identification, and claimed that the bike belonged to his nephew. The bike’s Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) had been destroyed, and the number the rider gave for his “nephew” was incorrect, said Marks.

The rider was given a ticket for driving without insurance and lost his ride. Police are now looking for someone who may had their Honda XR 100 bike stolen in recent months. Police are collaborating with the ICBC Special Investigative Unit on the search for the owner. Anyone who may know who owns the bike can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. Police will need the real owner to be able to provide details about the bike such as its colour and correct model year.

tales of woe

Criminals are targeting Langley residents with sad tales and stealing from their homes while people are trying to help. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Langley RCMP are issuing a warning after three similar recent thefts in which crooks used sob stories to get into local homes. The most recent incident took place in Langley City on Oct. 16, when a man and a woman asked to come inside to get water for their car radiator. After they were gone, the homeowner noticed a wallet missing, along with credit cards and a variety of types of ID. The thieves in these incidents are using requests that included asking for hot water to warm a baby’s bottle, using a phone, or using a microwave. The scammers are continuing to come up with new ways to get into homes, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. Stories may be appealing or heart wrenching, but police recommend people do not allow strangers into their homes. If they need help, get them what they need while they wait outside, said Marks. The impact of the crime, if discovered quickly, may be the loss of some money and the time and effort to replace ID and cards, said Marks. If the theft is not discovered soon enough, however, the victim may have charges run up on their credit cards and may have their identity stolen. The suspects in the most recent incident are described as a Caucasian woman in her late 20s, about 5’2” to 5’6” with an average to heavy build, curly brown hair, and sunglasses. The man with her was Caucasian, with short black hair, brown eyes, and was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans. Anyone who can help police identify the suspects can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-2228477 (TIPS).

Citizenship

New Canadians take oath Fifty people came to Langley to receive their Canadian citizenship.

by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Several dozen Brookswood Secondary students had front row seats to a federal citizenship ceremony. Originally hailing from 20 different nations, the 50 people became Canadians officially Friday morning, hosted by Brookswood as a 40th anniversary of the school’s opening. Most of the students have never had to think about choosing a nationality. They were born in Canada. Doungchan Thablangrad had to make a choice, for her and her teenage daughter, and chose citizenship, a natural evolution after marrying a Canadian man a few years ago. “It feels exciting,” she said just after the ceremony when asked about this new chapter in her life. Many of the people conducting the citizenship ceremony related their own immigrant experiences. Brookswood Secondary principal Marchello Moino is the son of immigrants who became citizens. MP Mark Warawa is the child of Ukrainian immigrants. Master Cpl. Andrew Tan came to Canada as a small child about 20 years ago. He said that while his family has sometimes

He joined the Canadian military and has served in Afghanistan. Justice Dane Minor was once in the same position as those new Canadians. “I took the citizenship oath in 1976,” he told the crowd. He encouraged the new Canadians to accept the rights and responsibilities of citizenship, encouraging

them to use the freedom and security of Canadian citizenship to pursue opportunities. “We enjoy rights and freedoms unknown in many parts of the world,” Minor said. To help them experience more of this country, each new Canadian citizen also receives a one-year family pass to the nation’s historic and cultural venues, usable at more than 1,000 sites.

Few surprises in youth report

What a surprise! A quality-of-life survey aimed at youth and released by the Vancouver Foundation last week came up with the amazing revelation that more needs to be done throughout Metro Vancouver to fight poverty, work on homelessness, and fix transportation problems. Not surprisingly, the Youth Vital Signs report notes that the current minimum wage of $10.25 per hour is not enough to sustain even a single person living alone in one of the highest cost-of-living regions in Canada – indeed, in North America. Of course, with a youth unemployment rate at nearly a full quarter of the employable base, that minimum wage doesn’t have much meaning – except that some folks will naturally interpret it to mean that it should be lowered, rather than raised… which would ensure that, while more young people might find jobs, even more of them will be working for their below-povertylevel existence. Hand-in-glove with the province’s poverty-stricken minimum wage and high youth unemployment rate is the problem of homelessness. It’s not hard to make the connection – young people without enough money to survive comfortably find ways to survive uncomfortably. It’s as simple as that. Transportation is a problem for everyone, but here again, it’s clear that students and others having difficulty making ends meet can’t pay increasing transit fares. The report does include one surprise: it found that high living costs are driving young people out of Metro Vancouver and into Maple Ridge and Langley. What’s surprising is that those who compiled the survey were apparently unaware that Maple Ridge and Langley are both part of Metro Vancouver. Although, in their defence, both communities do tend to be overlooked by the rest of Metro Vancouver, especially when it comes to that transit issue. – B.G.

Streetlights

Road safety impaired by darkness

Dear Editor, How many BC Hydro men does it take to replace a light bulb? I really don’t know, as I’ve waited more than six months to find out. The long block on 48th Avenue, below the roundabout towards Newlands, is very dark and dangerous, with lots of traffic and pedestrians. Six months ago I phoned the Township to report the streetlight out. The Township lady told me wooden poles are BC Hydro poles, and she said she would inform them of the light being out. She also said it might take awhile before they got to it. After two or three months, I phoned BC Hydro myself and informed them of the situation. Nothing. My neighbour asked about it. He phoned the Township four months ago. Does anyone care, until some situation

threatens a lawsuit? It’s now dark early, and things are getting a little dangerous out there, because it is very, very dark. There is one light on a side street off 48th Avenue, but its not throwing light on 48th. There has been no follow-up by the Township. How far does the ball roll after its been dropped? If anyone from BC Hydro reads the local papers, maybe they’ll notice this letter. The number of that pole with a light out for months all through the summer and its transformer is #2177432, just up the street from 214A Street. We need that light on to make things a little bit safer over here. D.J. Cummings, Langley For more letters to the editor visit... www.langleyadvance.com – Click on Opinion.

Generosity

Christmas spirit served up with a spot of tea

Several hundred women and even a few fellas enjoyed afternoon tea to help the Langley Christmas Bureau. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

About 500 people gathered for afternoon tea and entertainment Nov. 17. And the evening before, many listened to area jazz talent in Fort Langley. In the weeks to come, others will buy tickets to hear the First Capital Chorus Christmas Concert on Dec. 20, will drop off toys or cash, or even host a fundraiser among family and friends. And it’s all in the name of helping the Langley Christmas Bureau to, for the 40th year, provide Christmas to Langley families in need. A key reason why there is such broad-based community support is the bureau’s structure. Unlike other Christmas bureaus, Langley’s $100,000 operation is entirely volunteer-run and all money and gift donations go to the children. Overhead, office space, even the coffee for volunteers is provided by businesses or other supporters. Many of the businesses or community groups will even send in groups of helpers to provide free labour.

• A three-hour stand-off between police and a lone gunman in a Milner home ended with the man, rifle in hand, quietly leaving the house and surrendering to authorities. • Township council’s attempt to bring sewers to Fort Langley was thwarted by a 26-page petition bearing the signatures of 600 Fort residents opposed to a previously presented local improvement petition. • A robber attended a local church, and left with the congregation’s collection after the service was over. • Langley City Mayor Joe Lopushinsky threatened legal action against a daily newspaper that reported he had called his councillors “filthy pigs” during an interview. The report had appeared during Lopushinsky’s re-election campaign, and just weeks after he had been forced to apologize for publicly calling his councillors “idiots.” • The prime suspect in a murder case, which emerged after a dismembered body was found in a Langley field, turned himself in to Surrey police. • Christine Lamont’s appeal to a five-judge appeal court in Brasilia failed. The Langley woman and her fiance, David Spencer, were serving 28-year sentences in Brazil after they were convicted of kidnapping.

The Household Hazardous Waste Plus Recycling Drop-Off Event featured drive up service for Township residents.

Environment

Don’t snooze on your contributions.

Get our Better-than-cash™ GIC at 1.45 % * and avoid RRSP crunch time.

It’s almost RRSP season. You know what that means – waiting until the eleventh hour to get your contributions in and getting really stressed out. But what if you tried something different this year? We think our Better-than-cash™ GIC at 1.45% might just be crazy enough to tempt you to come in before the rush. It’s RRSP-eligible and redeemable starting March 1, 2014 with full interest accrued1. Plus, you can start investing with just $500. Crazy, right? So head over to Coast and get your RRSP business – and stress – out of the way early this year.

Many household hazards diverted

Tonnes of toxic items were collected for proper disposal.

The Langley Township annual Household Hazardous Waste Plus Recycling Drop-Off Event gave residents concerned about keeping contaminants out of the environment. And residents turned out in droves. On Oct. 19 and 20, just over 1,000 vehicles – 15 per cent more than last year – went through the Township’s Operation Centre to drop off everything from paint, pesticides, and fluorescent lights to recyclable electronics, batteries, and small appliances. Close to 25 tonnes of household hazardous waste were collected, along with almost 2.5 tonnes of paint, solvents, lights, and smoke alarms. Three tonnes of car batteries and 700 kilograms of household batteries were turned in during the event. Also collected were five tonnes of electronics. “We were pleased to see the number of citizens who made the effort to properly dispose of potentially dangerous prod-

ucts,” said Township Solid Waste coordinator Debbie Fleming. “Our community takes pride in caring for the environment and the people who used the service seemed truly appreciative of the event. Plus, the weather cooperated in our favour this year.” The collected items were properly sorted. The products considered toxic, flammable, or corrosive, or those that contained reactive components, were disposed of safely. While the Township is pleased to provide the Household Hazardous Waste Plus Recycling Drop-Off, residents don’t need to hold on to materials such as paint, batteries, lights, smoke alarms, electronics, and small appliances and wait for the yearly event. Many items can be recycled year round at facilities within the region and a variety of retail outlets. A listing of items that can be returned and where they are accepted is available online in the Township’s Waste Wise Guide at tol.ca/wwg.

Winter woolies help less fortunate Caring recognized Outreach efforts by community builders, realtors,

www.langleyadvance.com

Local residents and businesses are opening their hearts and their closets this season, to assist families in need by donating warm clothing and blankets. Children and their families in Langley will be a lot warmer this year thanks to builders and building supply companies – like Langley’s own Country Lumber – which are participating in the 18th annual Coats for Kids campaign held this week by the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ View Association (GVHBA). In addition to Country Lumber and video the GVHBA office, there are 32 memwith ber companies at 45 locations in 13 municipalities that will serve as coat drop-off sites. Country Lumber is located at 22538 or online Fraser Hwy. in Murrayville, and open Monday to Friday, from 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. “Last year the response to Coats for Kids was heartwarming as Lower Mainland residents donated more than 3,000 coats, scarves, gloves, blankets, and new unwrapped toys and gifts for distribution to children, teenagers and adults,” said GVHBA chair Lynn Harrison. “I am delighted so many members of our association are participating in this annual initiative,” Harrison added. “It is so important to help families in our commuities who are in need, especially during this time of the year.” The drive from Nov.18 to Dec. 6 runs in support of the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau – of which the Langley Christmas Bureau is a recipient.

Realtors collecting, too

In the meantime, Langley realtors are joining hundreds of real estate offices between Whistler and Chilliwack this week in the 19th annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive. The realtors’ drive is the longest running and largest warm clothing and blanket drive in the region, also running this week, from Nov. 18 to 25. Realtors expressed a greater need for donations this season; hoping collections exceed last year totals of approximately 200 large bags of blankets, sleeping bags, jackets, coats, new socks and underwear, boots, and shoes for both adults and children. Donations collected in Langley stay in Langley, and in this community the items collected will be divied up between the Salvation Army’s Gateway of Hope and the Wagner Hills Ministry.

Blanketing the country

Another drive to help keep less fortunate people warm this winter is also in the works. The Canadian furniture and home accessory store, Urban Barn in Willowbrook, is running its second annual blanket drive until Dec. 8. With every $5 donated at the local store, a brand-new fleece blanket will be donated to a local community shelter. The goal is to provide 10,000 blankets to those in need this winter, countrywide, but the donations in this case are going to a shelter in Surrey.

Staff at a complex care facility were part of a special celebration last week.

The folks at Simpson Manor in Fort Langley were treated to a staff appreciation celebration recently. Decker Management and the manor’s leadership team for the 96-bed complex care facility hosted the event on Nov. 13. They honoured staff for their dedication and recognized the staff members years of service. Staff members were honoured for service ranging from five to 30 years. Each staff member was presented with a rose, service award certificate and cash gift based on how long they’ve worked there.

IPhone and iPad thefts from the Best Buy warehouse in Walnut Grove were traced to Port Coquitlam. Best Buy contacted the Langley RCMP about tens of thousands of dollars of missing equipment. General Duty officer’s arrested the suspect for theft and Langley’s Street Enforcement Unit (responsible for property crime) took conduct of the investigation which led them to a residence in Port Coquitlam where a warrant was executed. “Investigators determined the products were being sold on Craig’s List and over $12,000 cash was seized during the search,” said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks. “Additionally $23,000 worth of iPad’s, iPhones and computers were located and seized in the residence.”

reported as lost or stolen as of Sept. 30, 2013, and beyond. “It is imperative that customers contact their service provider to immediately report a lost or stolen phone to have their device deactivated,” Marks noted. “It is only when the device has been reported that the service provider can then add the device to the blacklist. All instances of personal theft should of course be reported to local law enforcement as well.”

People can go to the website ProtectYourData.ca to find out if a cellphone has been blacklisted by cell providers and cannot be used. The investigation continues as police look into who purchased the stolen items. “It is believed the thefts had been taking place over the last month,” she said. The suspect, a 23-year-old male from Port Coquitlam, was released from custody to appear in Surrey Provincial Court on Jan. 31, 2014. “If you plan to purchase a second hand

Public safety

Police say pay attention Pedestrian safety is more important this time of year, say police. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Langley RCMP spent the last two weeks of October undertaking an education and enforcement blitz for pedestrian safety. The goal was to let the public about safe practices, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. The sessions, which included face-to-face talks with pedestrians. Enforcement efforts, took place in Aldergrove and the Willowbrook area. Police gave pedestrians reflective zipper pulls to

help make them more visible to other forms of traffic. During the ticketing blitz, officers handed out 150 violation tickets. Interestingly, drivers received the bulk of the tickets. There were 23 pedestrian offences observed, compared to 39 tickets for failure to wear a seatbelt, 42 for distracted driving, two for not having a driver’s licence and five more for failure to produce a driver’s licence. Police also handed out three tickets to cyclists without helmets, and caught a number of drivers for intersection violations and one for passing on the right. “Every year in Langley, an average of 21 ped-

estrians are injured in crashes taking place from October to December when crashes involving pedestrians increase across the province,” Marks said. She advised that pedestrians and drivers need to be aware of their surroundings and what they are doing. Put away cellphones, don’t wear headphones, and don’t play with electronic gadgets while walking, Marks advised. Other tips include using designated crossing points and following pedestrian traffic signals, making eye contact with drivers, looking right and left for oncoming vehicles before stepping off the curb, and wearing brightly coloured or reflective clothing.

Building green will pay off

Langley Township’s new Green Building Permit Rebate Program was one of the initiatives Mayor Jack Froese highlighted during a BC Hydro Power Smart Forum session held October 22 to recognise political leadership on energy efficiency.

Langley Township is offering a building rebate to promote green development.

It pays to do business in the Township of Langley – especially if you are an environmentally active builder. A Green Building Permit Rebate Program, the first of its kind in Metro Vancouver, has been adopted by Township council to encourage developers to create homes with enhanced energy efficiency beyond what

At the negotiating table or in court, Sharene will present your case in a manner that ICBC adjusters and lawyers will respect and understand.
