Metro Vancouver is replacing a section of sewer, and 200th Street from 53rd Avenue to Fraser Highway will be off limits for up to a year starting this summer. The Carvolth Trunk Sewer No. 2 project is slated to start in the summer and take eight to 12 months as Metro Vancouver and Langley City do work on the stretch of 200th Street, meaning major traffic headaches. “We’re hoping that people will start to make plans,” said North Vancouver Mayor Darrell Mussatto, chair of the Metro Van Utilities Committee, about the need to detour for several months. The joint project is worth almost $10 million, including $2.1 million for planning and engineering, $5 million for construction of Metro Vancouver’s work, and $1.8 million for the City portion. The infrastructure upgrade project involves building a new sanitary sewer pipe from Fraser Highway near 201st Street, across

Traffic will be rerouted off 200th Street starting this summer for sewer and watermain work. 57A Avenue and down 200th Street to Michaud Crescent where the line heads southwest to 53rd Avenue. The project involves installing 1.4 kilometres of PVC pipe ranging from 900 millimetres to 1.2 metres as well as concrete sewer pipe. The current pipe is 36 inch PVC. “The line that’s currently there was built in the ’70s,” Mussatto said. “It’s approaching its capacity.” A second larger line will parallel the existing sewer line which will remain in service. And since the area will be torn up, Langley City will do some upgrades of some of its underground servicing in the area from
200th Street to 57A Avenue, including the installation of two new water mains, a new storm sewer and a sanitary sewer. That work will be followed by repaving of 200th Street in the work area. “Metro Vancouver currently does not have plans for any additional construction work beyond the ends of this sewer,” Mussatto said. “The Township of Langley has just completed construction of a forcemain at the north end and at the south end we will be connecting to the newly constructed Nicomekl Trunk Sewer.” It all adds up to major traffic disruptions on a key arterial roadway for eight to 12 months.
There will be lane closures and flaggers. Metro Vancouver said that to reduce the disruption, the closures will be one block at a time but the intersections along 200th Street will be impacted. Metro Van held a public session in December 2013 about the project where affected residents had a chance to make comments or ask questions. Metro Vancouver, which oversees water and sewer for most of the Lower Mainland, has provided residents in the area with information and contact numbers if they have questions or concerns during the project. The work is supposed to provide enough City and Township capacity for the next five decades. A secondary treatment plant in Walnut Grove near the Fraser River treats some of North Langley’s wastewater. The sewer in the 200th Street area eventually connects to the South Surrey Interceptor system and the sewage is treated at Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plant. That plant is in the early stages of a $500 million upgrade. By the time the work starts this summer, the 196th Street overpass is supposed to be open in May, depending on weather, so it and streets around 200th will have to carry the extra traffic during construction.

Langley teacher disciplined
A Langley teacher is suspended at the start of the next school year. by Matthew Claxton firstname.lastname@example.org
A Langley Secondary teacher has been disciplined for using school equipment for a private business he started in 2012. Murray Charles Howes, a physical education teacher, started using the LSS weight room to run a crossfit business in 2003. A consent resolution agreement drafted by the B.C. Commission for Teacher Regulation shows that in 2012, Howes was required to start renting the weight room as Howes’ crossfit classes were operating as a for-profit business. He rented the weight room for July, then in the middle of the month he opened his own
business, Campus Crossfit. the investigation began. “As equipment for his new Howes was suspended for business had not yet arrived, two days without pay in April Howes removed equipment last year by the district. that he needed for Campus In 2013, Howes was the Crossfit from the school’s subject of a second investigaweight room,” tion.

He accept a reprimand under the removed the link the day after Teachers Act.
Teachers will start job action April 23 but say it will be aimed at administration and not have an impact in the classroom. This is stage one. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation says teachers won’t be supervising students outside the classroom and will not do administrative duties. Teachers will prepare report cards and meet with parents. “I will not speculate on how long stage one will last. It will depend entirely on what happens at the bargaining table,” said BCTF president Jim Iker. As well the BCTF had sought a Labour Relations Board ruling on essential service levels. The BCTF says there is no schedule for escalation to stage two, but that it would depend on progress at the bargaining table. The LRB would likely also determine the ground rules for stage two, which is rotating strikes around the province, something the teachers have never done before. Iker said recently that the teachers asked for the ruling because little progress had been made in negotiations between teachers and their employer. The ruling may also address anything the government has brought to the LRB, which could include a request for teachers to pay the full cost of their benefits during any job action. Peter Cameron, the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association’s chief negotiator asked for this in a letter to Iker, and said in a news conference that the move, estimated to cost $5 million a month, was required to put pressure on the teachers to settle. Iker called the move “outrageous” because the teachers would still be teaching in stage one. The major issues are salaries, the duration of the agreement and class size and composition. The employer is offering a 10-year contract with a seven per cent wage increase over the first six years and indexing for the following four years. The teachers are asking for 13.5 per cent over a three-year contract.

Local longtime MLA Rich Coleman was back at the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce last week to talk about liquified natural gas. Coleman, deputy premier and minister for natural gas, has used his annual speech to the chamber to talk about LNG before, including during his 2012 speech when the government was still just starting out with its ambitious policy. There are now seven compan-
ies working on LNG plant projects, Coleman told the Chamber members. He pointed to the main recipients of natural gas, China, Japan, South Korea, and India. China in particular needs natural gas to reduce its dependence on coal and to bring down its staggering levels of air pollution, Coleman noted. “Their companies are here investing because they need the gas,” Coleman said. Coleman did say that Canada is not the only place that is trying to get into the lucrative market. “We’re in competition globally for this,” he said. He said B.C. has several advantages, including being relatively closer to Asia than many of the
competitors, and the cool weather of northern B.C. Coleman said that because of the lower temperatures, it costs less to cool and compress the gas down to a liquid form, compared to comparable operations planned for Australia. One of the major messages of Coleman’s talk was that while northern B.C. is where the gas will be drilled and shipped from, the Lower Mainland has a part to play. There is a firm in Langley that builds LNG gauges, Coleman said, and he also mentioned Langley’s Britco Structures, which manufactures modular housing and offices for oil fields and gas drilling sites. The Lower Mainland receives about 55.5 per cent of resourcebased jobs in B.C., Coleman said.

Mulligan can force a special meeting if he rounds up support from five per cent, or 550 B.C. lawyers. On Monday, lawyers for openly gay Vancouver park board commissioner Trevor Loke filed a B.C. Supreme Court petition to sue the provincial government for approving the law school.
Trinity Western University graphic
A conceptual drawing of the proposed law school has been created. Trinity Western University plans to push ahead with its plans. Loke, who identifies himself as a Christian, claims the minister’s decision fosters a discriminatory policy, denies him access to one of the four law schools in the province, and violates his rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and
Freedoms. “It’s akin to creating a segregated environment where some people are welcomed and some people are not,” Loke said. Kuhn told The Vancouver Sun he was disappointed because the challenge represented even
more money being thrown at an issue he said has already been resolved. Kuhn said that if Loke were a student, he, like all common law partners, would need to abstain from sex under the school’s community covenant. “I don’t think it’s a question of excluding anybody, necessarily, but there will inevitably be some people who will choose, for any number of reasons… not to go to Trinity Western law school,” he said. The province has until April 29 to submit its response to the court.

Reflect hazards in penalties
Inebriated drivers kill people. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out why. They are unable to focus properly on the task of driving, they cannot see as clearly as when they are sober, and their reaction times are compromised by the alcohol coursing through their systems. But amazingly, they are no longer the deadliest drivers on the roads in three provinces – Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, and Ontario – where cellphone users, particularly those who text while driving, have taken over that fatal lead spot. And texting drivers have moved into second place with a bullet in B.C., hot on the heels of the drunk drivers. And while their deadly drinking-driver cousins’ behaviour is chemically altered, the reasons behind the texters’ deadliness are the same: they aren’t focused on their driving, they’re not seeing the road ahead, and their attention on their electronic devices impairs their reaction time when something goes awry. While some folks may easily delude themselves into believing that talking on a cellphone isn’t too dangerous, statistics say otherwise. In fact, it turns out that taking or making calls on hands-free devices is just as hazardous as using hand-held phones. Unfortunately, laws prohibiting only handheld devices haven’t caught up to that reality yet. But honestly, how stupid does a person have to be to fail to recognize the dangers of texting while driving? A study in Virginia showed that texting drivers are 23 times more likely to be involved in a collision than are drivers who are not distracted. Other studies have shown that there is also a significantly greater likelihood of a fatality occurring in an accident involving a distracted driver. It’s time to bring the law up to speed with all dangerous driving. A practice that is killing as many people as drinking and driving should be met with similar penalties – through the Criminal Code of Canada. – B.G.

Two sides to tree bylaw decisions
Dear Editor, Langley politics appears to be a microcosm of the attitude towards the environment right across all levels of governance in Canada, from Stephen Harper to Christy Clark and our local MLAs, down to Mayor Jack Froese and his sympathetic councillors. On all levels, there is a blatant disregard for staggering evidence of global warming. Sound scientific evidence is seen as a roadblock to profits for shareholders, so it is stricken from government data. Canada’s poor environmental record is reflected at our local level. When even just the attempt at bringing in a tree bylaw is met with such a negative backlash, one has to wonder at just how educated council is on the environment. On all levels, we need forward-thinking governing bodies that have vision for new energy technology, for new ways of creating community, and for making our communities food-secure. ALR land needs to be used for growing food, instead of being a holding pen for future developers. And please, no thinly veiled excuses about the land not being farmable. The prevalent, danger-
ous attitude towards the environment has us all on a very nasty track with an unthinkable destiny. Our current set of politicians and councillors has to go. We have one home and one home only, this tiny blue dot in the galaxy. Edith Schwartz, Brookswood
Trees just property
Dear Editor, Thanks to council members who stood strong on property owners’ rights and defeated the tree bylaws. It looks like the next hurdle is to overcome Coun. Kim Richter’s notice that she will call for a referendum on a tree bylaw for the Nov. 15 municipal election. Property owners should attend the meeting to voice disapproval of such wasting of our tax dollars. Langley Township property owners must be aware of certain council members’ willingness to sacrifice private property rights for votes from the relentless tree lobby protesters. It’s Brookswood and Fernridge getting the attention now, but if they get their foot in the door with a punitive tree bylaw, the rest of Langley will be their next target. There appears a strangling effect in today’s climate,
with overzealous activists organizing against every issue involving growth or energy, fiercely determined to take away our rights. We desperately need politicians with the courage and forethought to see and project beyond the antiprogress contrarians. If you react to every protest issue by banning things, there will be no rights or freedoms left to defend. The biggest danger of the big conifers in Brookswood and Fernridge is that of fire spread. Clearing of timber creates additional fire breaks to give firefighters a chance. You could take another 200 truckloads of timber out of Fernridge, and still have a lot more conifer trees per acre than Brookswood. It’s astounding watching the tree lobby hyperventilate every time some trees are harvested. Cutting private timber is not unlike a farmer harvesting his crop, and it is under proper permit approvals of the Ministry of Forests, monitored by the BC Wildlife Federation and Ministry of Environment Conservation Field Officer for significant nesting.

TWU law school
Arguments against flaws flawed Dear Editor, Perhaps John Redekop [Anti-law school arguments flawed, April 17 Letters, Langley Advance] lacks objectivity because of his position as adjunct professor at TWU. May I enlighten him to the flaws of his arguments? First, comparing American and Canadian law schools is comparing apples and oranges. Check the admission requirements. Second, the “social policy” to which he refers (abstaining from gay sex) is not based on the Constitution, the Charter, or any legislation. Third, he is quite right: many lawyers (maybe most) do disagree with certain laws (marijuana, prostitution, euthanasia, to

name a few), but as lawyers, we still must uphold those laws and can be disbarred if we breach them. Holding a contrary opinion does not give one the right to flout the law. Finally, how does TWU plan to teach its budding lawyers about the Human Rights Code and discrimination? By ignoring the fact that discrimination based on sexual orientation is illegal? What he advocates is not social progress. I doubt that this debate is over. I, for one, am offended.

Acts of kindness
Moms invited for oil change
Once again the Seventh Day Adventist Church is offering a free car servicing to local single mothers. by Roxanne Hooper
Admittedly, many women hate to get their hands too dirty. And the thought of changing oil in their car – even if they know how – is out of the question. Well, two dozen single mothers have a chance to have their oil changed for free – and they won’t have to get their fingers dirty – thanks to the Acts of Kindness (AOK) team from the Aldergrove Seventh Day Adventist church, explained pastor Melissa Cooke. “We do this two times a year, and we continue to make this event available to single Single Mothers Oil Change recipients moms, are treated to refreshments while especially waiting for their car to be serviced. moms with young kids, because we know that being a mom is a hard but rewarding work,” said Cooke, who herself just returned from maternity leave. “We would love to give single moms a chance to put their feet up and have a break,” she explained, noting that the single moms who register get their oil changed, car washed, and vehicle vacuumed. And on oil change day – Sunday, May 4 – there will also be a few perks, including some light snacks and door prizes. The church’s AOK ministry offers several programs to help people in need in this community, including the Extreme Home Repair, the Mini-vans for Moms, and the Single Mothers Oil Change. To register for this spring’s oil change, single moms must register soon by calling 604-856-5830 with the vehicle make and model and the litre size of the engine.
Extreme Home Repair
Restoring a grandmother’s home A church group is stepping up to help an Aldergrove woman and her grandson reclaim their house. by Roxanne Hooper email@example.com
Pealing wallpaper can be overlooked. Cloudy windows with broken seals are problematic, but not insurmountable. But add a backyard blackberry jungle and a rotten deck, worn floors, broken cabinets, and general deterioration of the home, and it has left a single grandmother in a desperate situation. Fortunately, early next month a team of a hundred or so volunteers and dozens of sponsors are coming together to turn Pat Tapper’s life around, said Pastor Michael Dauncey. He heads up the Aldergrove Seventh Day Adventist church acts of kindness ministry, and is preparing for the group’s annual Extreme Home Repair project. And he’s announcing that Tapper will have her home and her life transformed. “I’ve been praying for a long time to get something done,” she said, noting help reclaiming her backyard would have from the armpit high bramble would have been sufficient. “They told me that they’re doing the house too, which is just an extra blessing,” Tapper told the Langley Advance. She’s had a number of health issues and limited funds, both of which have hampered her ability to maintain her Aldergrove home over the years, Dauncey explained. For instance, he said, “the house is in
Pat Tapper and her grandson Chase welcome the arrival of the AOK team – coming May 2 to reno their home. dire need of major cleaning and painting,” and “the interior condition of the house is in need of major renovation.” Tapper bought the home when it was only a year old, that’s when she and her family moved out from Surrey more than 30 years back. It’s been home ever since. “The good news is that Extreme Home Repair will change this house so that it is livable for Pat and her grandchildren,” Dauncey said, claiming the AOK team is anxious to deliver “hope and healing to another family in Aldergrove… Pat’s house will be totally transformed and comfortable.” Despite what Dauncey describes as
personal struggles and setbacks, Tapper managed to raise her 14-year-old grandson Chase since he was an infant and providing shelter – when needed – for her teenage granddaughter Crystal, 12. “The family needs help and encouragement. A comfortable dwelling for Pat and her grandchildren would definitely be life changing!” Dauncey said. Tapper can hardly wait, but admitted she’s not only excited but a little nervous about the experience. “I don’t not like knowing what’s going on,” and in this case she’s simply been instructed to pack up her house and leave the rest to AOK. The depth of the work they’ll do, she’s been told, will be a surprise. So for now, she’s just doing her best to box up the entire house; “At least, I’m trying my best to get it done,” before the crews arrive at the end of the month. This year will be the 11th for Extreme Home Repair. And while the team traditionally tackles one large project each year, this year they’ve chosen to take on two smaller projects. The Tapper EHR, which Dauncey describes as a medium-sized undertaking compared to past years, begins on May 2, and will wrap up with the big reveal on Victoria Day, May 19. This year we wanted to help more than one family,” Dauncey said, noting a much smaller team of volunteers and donors just finished what he called a mini-EHR on the Olford mobile home (see related story). Anyone interested in helping with the Tapper house transformation is invited to call Pastor Dauncey at 778-549-3896 or emailing extremehomevolunteer@gmail. com.

Mobility returns as repair project wraps up Carol Oldford
Carol Oldford is waiting for her water main to be repaired. But despite that unexpected hiccup which came Thursday, volunteers are almost finished stabilizing and transforming the exterior of her Langley home.
This year, Aldergrove’s Seventh Day Adventist church members decided to take on two smaller house remodels, instead of one of their grand Extreme Home Repairs. While Tappers [see story above] will be the
larger of the two projects, the acts of kindness team also decided to squeeze in some much needed leveling and re-roofing to Oldford’s 232nd Street mobile home. “It looks fantastic,” the homeowner shared with

Junior A hockey
LMHA alumni part of steamrolling Express
Langley players assumed different roles in helping Coquitlam win the B.C. Hockey League playoff championship. by Troy Landreville email@example.com
The Coquitlam Express’s storybook run through the B.C. Hockey League playoffs has a Langley chapter included in it. Express forwards Daniell Lange and Brendan Lamont along with defenceman Anthony Gardner all hail from Langley and played their minor hockey in the community. As well, brothers Bo and Canon Pieper lived in Langley during the season. Express head coach Barry Wolff said Lange and Lamont helped push the Express to the top of the playoff mountain. “[Lange] played a fourth-line role but there were times with injuries and suspensions where he played a big role in our success,” Wolff said. “Next year we expect him to be one of our goto guys on a regular basis.” Wolff compared Lamont’s style of play to that of Boston Bruins
superpest Brad Marchand. And like Marchand has in past NHL playoffs with the Bruins, Lamont has elevated his play in the postseason. “He’s been unreal,” Wolff said, regarding Lamont. “He’s an energy guy who always brings grit and determination.” Lamont, 19, has scored twice and added five helpers in 19 post-season games. Gardner, an 18-year-old rookie rearguard, was scoreless in two playoff appearances with the Express (both against the Langley Rivermen) during their run to the Fred Page Cup. Gardner was the Express’s seventh defenceman most of the campaign, but as the Express’s only returning blueliner next season, will take on a more prominent role in the future. “He should be [among the Express’s] top-four [defenceman next year] for sure, for us,” Wolff said. After a so-so regular season, one in which they finished just above .500 with a 27-26-2-3 record to slot in third in the BCHL’s Mainland Division, the Express found their stride in a big way during the post-season. It all started with a six-game victory over the Prince George Spruce Kings in their best-ofseven, opening round series.

The upsets kept coming, including a six-game stunner over the BCHL regular season champion Rivermen, who rolled to a league-best 37-13-3-5 record before dispatching the Surrey Eagles in the first round. The Express jumped out to a two-games-to-none series lead on the ’Men before battling to another four-games-to-two victory. After emerging from a round robin semifinal tournament involving the Victoria Grizzlies and Vernon Vipers, the Express faced off against the Vipers for the Fred Page Cup (BCHL playoff championship). The Express pulled off yet another stunner by sweeping the Vipers in four games in their best-of-seven series in Vernon to complete a storybook playoffs. Two of the games went into overtime, with the Express winning game two 4-3 and game three 3-2. In the series clincher, the Express overcame a 3-2, third period deficit to edge the Vipers 4-3. The Coquitlam juniors are now taking a much-needed break before travelling to Dauphin,
Langley Minor Hockey Association grads Daniell Lange, Brendan Lamont, and Anthony Gardner helped the Coquitlam Express to the Fred Page Cup championship. The Express completed a fourgame sweep of the Vernon Vipers in the B.C. Hockey League championship series with a 4-3 win at Coquitlam’s Poirier Sports and Leisure Centre last Tuesday, April 15. Also pictured are Bo and Canon Pieper, who lived in Langley during the season. Man. and the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup. The top two teams qualify for the RBC Cup, hosted May 10-18 by the Vipers. For Lange, this spring feels like deja vu. Last season, the 5’11” 180pound right winger played for a Richmond Sockeyes junior B team that won the Pacific Junior Hockey League title, Cyclone Taylor Cup B.C. championship, and finally, the Keystone Cup Western Canadian title. His junior B travels last spring
took him to Courtenay (Cyclone Taylor Cup) and St. Malo, Man. (Keystone Cup). Now, he’s part of an Express team that has steamrolled through the BCHL post-season. All the while, Lange, an 18year-old rookie, has adapted to taking on a different role than he had last year with the Sockeyes. After leading all PJHL goalscorers with 34 markers during the 2012/13 regular season, Lange is a fourth-line energytype player with the Express.

Lange credits Stealth’s playoff hopes snuffed out goaltender Pro lacrosse
Philadelphia found its wings while Vancouver wilted during the second half of Saturday’s NLL game at the Langley Events Centre.
Any hope the Vancouver Stealth had of making the National Lacrosse League playoffs fizzled Saturday at the Langley Events Centre. The Stealth fell to 4-12 and were officially eliminated from post-season contention after falling 15-11 to the Philadelphia Wings. The Wings, who improved to 6-11, were eliminated the week before, after a loss to the Toronto Rock. It was a tale of two halves, as the Stealth got off to a great start, scoring early and often. Vancouver’s Justin Salt found the back of the net just 1:01 into the first quarter. Then Ilija Gajic put the Stealth up 2-0 with a goal nine seconds later, but the Wings would quickly answer with some quick strikes of their own, as a total of 12 goals were scored in the opening quarter alone. At the half, the Stealth held an 8-6 advantage and were outshooting the Wings 29-25. In the second half, a lack of offence that has plagued the Stealth all season long turned out to be their undoing, as the Wings outscored the hosts 9-3 in the second half en route to the 15-11 victory.
Jordan Hall and Tracey Kelusky led the The Wings were also looking to finish charge for the Wings adding five points off the season strong and their offensive apiece. coach, Jim Milligan thinks they took a Hall, who was named the first star of step in the right direction Saturday. the game, finished with three goals and “Our goal was to finish with the best two assists, while Kelusky finished with record possible,” Milligan said. “We have one goal and four assists, and was named a lot of guys who wanted to compete in third star. the room. We lost a lot of tight games Brett Bucktooth and Jamie Lincoln this year so I don’t think our record each added a hat trick for the reflects our team’s compete Stealth. level, and I think our guys “We need to focus want to finish strong and Lincoln was named the second star of the game. tonight was a good start.” on playing a full It appeared the result of the The Stealth finish up 60 minutes, not Colorado game, which contheir regular season next cluded earlier Saturday evenweekend with a game in 58, but 60.” ing, played a factor in the Edmonton Friday, followed Cliff Smith Stealth’s second half. by their final home game of The Colorado win offithe season Saturday against cially eliminated the Stealth the Calgary Roughnecks. from playoff contention and seemed Game time is 7 p.m. to affect the team, but as The Stealth will look to finish on a high the Stealth’s Cliff Smith note and work towards improving for describes, there was much next season. more to play for. “When the season ends, we will have “We knew the outcome to re-evaluate,” said Smith. “We need to but at the end of the day focus on playing a full 60 minutes, not that game is irrelevant,” 58, but 60.

Lange’s playoff numbers are sparse, with two assists to his credit, but he has played a full 19 games with Coquitlam. “I’m just playing a typical fourth-line role, just go out there and get the boys going with energy and all that kind of stuff,” Lange said. “I’ve enjoyed all of it. It’s a lot different than what we did before in Richmond, but overall, it’s worth it.” He added that a team concept has powered the Express through the post-season. “Everybody from the top to bottom picked up their game, and everybody has played the best they could,” he said. He added that the Express’s last line of defence, goaltender Gordie Defiel, has put up a wall in the Coquitlam net. Defiel has started all 19 games for the Express, racking up a 14-5 record with a 2.69 goals against average and one shutout (against Prince George) in the first round. On a personal level, Lange said his experience with the Sockeyes helped prepare him for the rigours of playoff hockey. “It helped me with the mental aspect of it,” Lange said. “I know how long and hard the playoff run is. Playoffs are a lot more fun than the regular season; there’s a lot more to battle for.” Lange said each of the Express’s playoff opponents have brought difference challenges to the table. “Every team has been totally different,” he said. “We just had to adjust to the playing style and we came out on top after that.”

• Walnut Grove • Fort Langley • Willoughby
Owners petition to split properties Some new houses could be built on the eastern edge of Walnut Grove.
A semi-rural area could have some more houses added in the near future.
by Matthew Claxton firstname.lastname@example.org
Residents on the outskirts of Walnut Grove may be able to subdivide their properties, but only so far. On April 14, Langley Township council hear from residents around 217A Street and 86th Avenue, near the southeastern edge of Walnut Grove. The area is where rural land uses and large acreages begin to take over from the dense housing and townhouses of Walnut Grove west of 216th Street. A proposed change to the rural plan would allow local landowners to subdivide their lots – most of which are about 1.6 acres, into two lots. Several residents expressed concerns about the way the proposed change could affect their neighbourhood. “It’s all about traffic for me,” said Barb Peters.

She was worried about increased levels of traffic, and said there is already too much speeding in the area. Other residents also said they worried it would affect their abilities to continue using their land as hobby farms, or whether it would damage the rural character of the area. Proponent Dan Evans said the alteration won’t change farming or increase the amount that owners can subdivide their lands. At present, the rules allow residents to build two houses per lot and create a very small strata
corporation to oversee the properties. This change will allow residents to subdivide their lands without having to create a strata. The Township report says they will only be allowed to divide each property into two lots. Any access to new properties will have to come from either 217A Street, 86th Avenue, or new roads linking to those streets. None of the houses will be allowed to connect directly to 216th or busy 88th Avenue. “There is no change in density,” Evans said.
The lands are not in the Agricultural Land Reserve. Langley Township council is expected to vote on the proposed change at an upcoming meeting.
