School sets up whistleblower system Have you heard? Langley School District has a whistleblower policy in place. by Heather Colpitts firstname.lastname@example.org
The Langley School District has brought in a whistleblower policy for those who think something within the district is hinky or should be questioned. Trustee Candy Ashdown said it is overdue. “We don’t always agree in life,” said Trustee Rod Ross. “We need to embrace different points of view. I think it will make for a very healthy district.” Secretary treasurer David Green said such a policy could have been helpful in the past. “If this policy had been in place in 2008/2009, this district may not have ended up” in financial difficulties, Green noted. The district had a $13.75 million deficit

Law society vote to decide on TWU

Prospects for TWU’s planned law school will be tested by a vote of B.C. lawyers Tuesday. by Matthew Claxton

The president of Trinity Western University will try to convince the B.C. Law Society to accept lawyers trained by his Langley school. On Tuesday, a special meeting of the Law Society is being held in an attempt to prevent TWU-trained lawyers from practising in B.C. That would reverse a 20-7 vote of the Law Society held earlier this year.
A challenge from a Victoria lawyer gathered enough support from B.C. lawyers to force the special meeting. TWU president Bob Kuhn will speak to the lawyers, who will be gathering at sites around B.C., including in Surrey and Abbotsford. Debate on the resolution will start at 12:30 p.m., and voting will begin by 5 p.m. Law society members may speak for only a few minutes each. At issue is whether TWU’s rules about gay students should render it incapable of graduating lawyers. If one third of the law society vote members, and two thirds vote in favour, the resolution will be binding and TWU-trained lawyers won’t be able to practise in this province.

Ontario’s and Nova Scotia’s law societies have voted to not allow TWU lawyers to practice, while other provinces have approved. TWU is waging a legal battle with both of those law societies and with lawyers trying to overturn the B.C. Ministry of Advanced Education’s decision to approve the school. The TWU covenant came up as a legal issue in the late 1990s, over a teacher training program. The B.C. College of Teachers objected, and in 2001 the Supreme Court of Canada ruled eight to one in favour of the university. That ruling came before Canadian laws changed to allow gay marriage. • More at www.langleyadvance.com.

PET OF THE WEEK DONATE, ADOPT, VOLUNTEER
Francine was brought into LAPS after she had been found wandering the big city all alone and looking for some help. She has not been in our care very long but she has quickly stolen our hearts. We do not have any available history on her but we estimate her to be about 7 years old, possibly younger. She is still thin and needs to put on a little weight. Francine gets along well with other cats and dogs, as long as they don’t bug her too much. Francine is affectionate but like a typical lady… it is on her own schedule and terms! She enjoys pets but will also gently let you know once she has had enough. A cat-savvy individual might be the ideal adopter for this gal. Francine is very deserving of a pampered princess life.

Energy savings planned for Latimer neighbourhood The Latimer neighbourhood is about to start expanding. by Matthew Claxton email@example.com
Langley Township is planning to build its next Willoughby neighbourhood to maximize energy efficiency and green design. An open house for the Latimer Neighbourhood Plan was held Thursday at the Langley Events Centre. The Latimer area wraps around 200th Street and begins just south of the 200th Street interchange, beyond the existing office complexes there.
It stretches as far south as 72nd Avenue. The neighbourhood forms a rectangular doughnut around the Jericho subneighbourhood, which has its own planning process. One feature in the current proposed plan is to orient almost all the side streets east-west through the community. The idea is to save vast amounts of energy by simply aligning home with the sun for better heating a cooling. “It maximizes solar access for future houses,” said Ryan Schmidt, Langley Township’s community energy manager. Houses are to be oriented with their front and rear windows aimed south and north. For the
townhouses that will make up a large portion of the area, this will mean no east-west facing windows for most homes. That design does two things: during warm summer days, it eliminates or reduces the hot late afternoon sun coming in from the west, preventing homes from becoming too hot, and in the cold winter months, it encourages more sunlight to come in through windows at the front of the house. This is intended to keep summer cooling and winter heating bills down. Theoretically, it could save homeowners up to 30 per cent on heating and cooling costs. The houses are also well-pos-
itioned if developers or owners want to install solar panels for electricity at any point. “We’re really creating a solarready community” said Schmidt. He wasn’t aware of any other communities in the Lower Mainland looking at using a simple street design and house orientation plan to save energy. The plan also looks at how many schools could be needed for Latimer. With an expected population of around 20,000, it will need four elementary schools and a new middle school, according to the Township’s projections. Along with parks and playgrounds, the plan calls for some small “wildlife habitat patches.”
There could also be quarteracre “urban greens,” public grassy areas near businesses or public amenities. Two living walls – walls covered with built-in plant life – are planned for 200th Street at 80th Avenue and 76th Avenue. Eventually, 200th Street could be rebuilt to accommodate rapid buses, which would have to be done with budget-beleaguered TransLink. The final design could be four lanes for cars, bike lanes on either side, and down the centre of the street, two separated lanes for buses. With buses on the horizon, parking remains an issue for residents.

I am calm now in stressful situations! In the past 10 years I had a very short fuse, because my job is quite unpredictable. After I started Bell Calming Chronic Stress #66 the difference was amazing. My reactions to stressful situations are totally changed. I also have more energy, too. I don’t yell at others. I have more patience and I am much happier as well. Thank you.

So my mother bought Bell Calming Chronic Stress #66 and it has been helping me a lot. I am on my 3rd bottle. Remington Fletcher, 19, Ponty Pool, ON ! I have a very high stress career in the film industry. There was no time for relaxation or meditation as you are on demand for 12-15 hours a day with no breaks.

Christina Ollson, 36, Burnaby, BC !It’s exactly one year since we began using Bell Calming Chronix Stress #66 for our two sons. Our local health food store recommended it. Both of our sons suffer from anxiety disorders. Our older son (14) was going through puberty and had become quite unmanageable, because he is much larger than I am.

A man and woman are using a baby as an unwitting accomplice in scams and thefts. by Matthew Claxton firstname.lastname@example.org
Thieves are targeting Langley seniors for thefts, and they’re using a baby as a prop in their distraction attempts. As Senior’s Week was winding down across the province, the Langley RCMP warned elderly residents that a man and a woman have started stealing from them. The scheme begins at grocery stores, where the male suspect is thought to be selecting potential victims. The suspect follows the elderly person to their home, and is then joined by a woman. The woman often has a baby with her, said Const. Craig van Herk, a spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. The scammers then approach the victim asking for water for an overheating car, or even warm water to heat up their baby’s bottle. When the victim goes inside to get some water, they steal a wallet or purse and vanish. “It is difficult to measure the negative level in which some very unsavoury people will stoop,” said Insp. Murray Power, the operations support officer for the Langley RCMP. “For non-violent offences, these incidents rank as very disturbing. To be covertly invading the homes of our seniors for the purpose of stealing is reaching the lowest of levels. These thieves have captured the attention of police and investigations will be actively pursued.” Officers are trying to track down the man and woman involved in the distraction thefts. “We would like very much to identify who these individuals are,” said van Herk. Meanwhile, officers and auxiliary RCMP members will be visiting stores and talking to clerks, asking them to be on the lookout for the couple. Seniors are also urged to be mindful about people who approach them with such stories immediately after they arrive home. The Langley RCMP Crime Prevention Unit is available to meet with all members of the community, in particular seniors or their caregivers, to teach them how to recognize a potential criminal situation and how to reduce risks of becoming a victim. Staff within the unit can provide tips for: • personal safety on the street, • home security, • identity theft, • fraud protection, • home renovation fraud, • public utility imposter scams, • telemarketing scams, • medical frauds, and • Nigerian letter scams. If you would like to arrange for a presentation, call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3212.

New overpasses celebrated
Politicians heralded the openings of a new cluster of road and rail overpasses.
Two new road and rail overpasses in Langley City and on the Langley-Surrey border have opened to public traffic. Construction has finished on the overpasses at 54th Avenue in Langley City and 196th Street on the border between both Langleys and Surrey. On Friday, local politicians and officials with the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor project marked those openings, as well as the opening several months ago of the 232nd Street rail overpass. The overpasses are being built to alleviate traffic as longer and more frequent trains travel down the rail lines through Langley, Surrey, and Delta leading to the Deltaport shipping terminal. Moving traffic over the rail lines, and over roads such as the Langley Bypass, also is intended to improve road safety. The three overpasses being officially opened on
Friday cost $110.4 million, with $30.2 million coming from the federal government. The overpasses were completed on time and within budget, according to the government. Other funds came from the province, local municipalities, and a portion from the rail companies involved. A nearby overpass on 192nd Street in Surrey is scheduled for completion later this year. Five of the nine overpasses between Delta and Langley have so far been completed. “By working with our partners, we have delivered on infrastructure projects that will improve the flow of local road and rail traffic, decrease greenhouse gas emissions throughout British Columbia’s Lower Mainland, and increase Canada’s competitiveness in markets throughout the Asia Pacific Region,” said Langley MP Mark Warawa. Yet to be completed in Langley is the Mufford Glover overpass project. Many of the overpasses, including the Langley City project as well as Mufford-

Letter to express board’s concern over labour strife The Langley School District is voicing its opinion to both sides in the teacher battle.

by Heather Colpitts
Langley School District trustees will collaborate on a letter voicing their displeasure with the battle. Trustee Megan Dykeman brought up a motion June 2, to write to the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the B.C. Public Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) which negotiates on behalf of the provincial government. “I think it’s an “We haven’t said anything,” Dykeman said. “That’s why the apple pie thing.” letter needs to go to both parRod Ross ties.” She said the divisive activities taking place don’t benefit anyone, and the district needs to express its concern about what’s taking place. She suggested that it be drafted by board chair Wendy Johnson and reviewed by the rest of the trustees before it’s sent out, which other trustees had requested. Trustee Rod Ross said he wants to ensure it has a balanced perspective. “I think it’s an apple pie thing,” he commented. The vote was unanimous to send a letter.

High interest taken in Seattle’s higher wage
Seattle’s city council has made the audacious decision that, if you’re going to work within city limits, you deserve at least $15 per hour. That’s $15 American. With the highest minimum wage in the country set to be phased in over three years, all eyes will be on the city to see which prognosticators’ tea leaves are correct. Business groups are decrying it, warning it will raise prices, push jobs out of the city and ruin the Seattle economy. Labour groups are promising that this will be a boon to local business as employees will soon have more spending money to put back into the economy. No doubt, some businesses already on the bubble won’t have the wherewithal to contend with the higher overhead. That is the nature of capitalism. But the trend in the last 30 years has been for the cost of living to rapidly outpace growth in wages, and we worry this represents a greater threat to the economy as a whole. Every year the cost of living in the Lower Mainland is dragged ever higher by our already absurd real estate market. Every extra dollar spent on housing is one that could have been spent in a local business. To her credit, raising the minimum wage to $10.25 was something then-BC Liberal leadership candidate Christy Clark campaigned on and implemented shortly after becoming premier, though she has rejected recent calls to raise it any higher. While $15 will hardly rescue the middle class, it’s nice to see at least one jurisdiction has decided that the race to the bottom has gone on long enough. – Glacier Media

Hypocrites docking teachers’ pay
Dear Editor, So let me try to wrap my brain around this one. The government locks teachers out – they won’t
allow teachers do any work at lunch and recess. The government also won’t let teachers physically in the school until 45
Teachers told they’re special
Dear Editor, I am a retired bank manager with two adult children, and have an immediate family member who is a teacher. The BCTF has convinced teachers they are special and elite. Why are they special? They have chosen a profession, and all we ask is they fulfill their obligation. A Level 5 teacher has a salary of $88,000, based on 190 days per year with up to two days off per month, no questions asked, and other days, such as pro-D days. Allowing for prep time, we are looking at an income of $80 to $100 per hour, with no performance review. My work week was nine hours a day, no union protection, regular stringent performance reviews, and less pay than a Level 5 teacher. I did not go on strike; I chose the profession. I was not special, and neither are the teachers. Teachers have a job to do, like everyone else. Garry Stefanyk, Langley

minutes before school starts, and teachers are forced to leave school premises only 45 minutes after school ends. They also ruled that teachers are not allowed to do any school work at home. OK, got that. Then at the same time, the government docks teachers’ pay 10 per cent, defending their actions by saying that teachers are not doing their jobs. It’s lunacy! And such hypocrisy! Wow, am I tired of the hypocrisy. Speaking of hypocrisy, here’s a real barn burner for you: did you know that the same private school the premier sends her child to also receives funding from the government? That’s a two-tiered education system, both funded by taxpayer money! So when you start complaining about having to buy a pack of computer paper from your kid’s school supply list again (which is used to help supplement the never-bigenough paper budget in the school), don’t complain to me. Buy the paper. And remember that, no matter what you think of teachers, your taxes (which are supposed to support your kid’s public and “free” education) are also supplementing Christy Clark’s son’s private education. The joke is on every B.C. taxpayer. Too bad it just isn’t funny. Lori Opper, Aldergrove

Day parole granted for man convicted of murder
Family members opposed the release of a man who violently murdered a trainee pilot in 1992. by Theresa McManus Glacier Media
re-offend – not a small risk – as a sexual, violent predator of women.” Schaefer said it’s “shameful” that her sister’s family and friends even have to attend parole hearings, given his history. “The fact that he murdered while on parole and we have to fight to keep him in is so stupid. We shouldn’t have to,” she said. “You know what? It doesn’t matter how much we cried our hearts out and say he shouldn’t – it doesn’t make a difference, from their point of view, which is risk factors involved. And even though he is still a ‘moderate’ risk, they’re letting him out.” When convicted, the Supreme Court judge ruled that Perkin wouldn’t be eligible to apply for parole for 18 years,
based on the nature of the “brutal” killing and the public’s safety. The Crown’s case was based on the theory that Perkin, an experienced kick boxer who lived across the hall for Richards, struck her in the head and repeatedly stabbed her. At the time of Richards’ murder, Perkin was on parole for aggravated sexual assault and unlawful confinement. A manager of a townhouse complex at the time of that crime, he was found guilty of luring a woman to a shed where he bound and gagged her, sexually assaulted her and hit her over the head with a ball peen hammer. Richards’ family and friends disagree with the parole board’s view that Perkin is a “manageable risk” in the community.

A man convicted of killing a Langley woman nearly 22 years ago has been granted day parole. Wayne Alexander Perkin was convicted of second-degree murder the 1992 murder of 24-year-old Angela Richards. Richards, a graduate of New Westminster Secondary School and a Miss New Westminster contestant, had moved to Langley to train to become a helicopter pilot. She was murdered in her Langley apartment on June 13, 1992. About 10 of Richards’ family members and high school friends attended the June 5 parole hearing at William Head Institution on Vancouver Island. “Absolutely devastating,” Richards’ longtime friend Ben Doyle said of the decision. “I feel like I have just been coming out of a 22-year coma of sorts and now he seeks his freedom and gets it. I just can’t believe it. This is a guy who murdered while on parole. I am pretty sure most people don’t understand why he can get out.” After a three-and-a-half hour hearing, the two members of the parole board supported Perkin’s application for day parole. Day parole means he’s out during the day and stays at a half“I feel like I have just way house at night, been coming out of a and faces 22-year coma of sorts restrictions and now he seeks his such as no alcohol, no freedom and gets it.” drugs and Ben Doyle no sex with females under 18 years of age. “They are satisfied that he is a manageable risk,” Doyle said. “It’s insane to me. He still denies killing Angie and he minimizes all the other crimes, all the things he has been convicted of. It’s unbelievable. I really believed they were going to deny his application, but they didn’t. I was floored.” Corinne Schaefer, Richards’ sister, said evidence was presented at the hearing that suggested Perkin did well on the second of two unescorted temporary absences and has job opportunities when he leaves prison. While incarcerated, she said he’s also had more than 300 temporary escorted absences to attend meetings and appointments. “I wouldn’t have thought in a thousand years he would get off,” she told The Royal City Record after the hearing. “I am amazed. He is still a moderate risk to
“Absolutely not. I fear for people living in his vicinity,” Doyle said. “Here is the reason: if he won’t even come to terms with what he has done, he is totally out of touch with his own risk factors.” Following the hearing, Schaefer called her mom and let her know that Richards’ killer had been granted day parole. “We cried a bit. She did say she knew in her heart from watching all the different news stories about people who did get out, she sort of knew in her heart. It’s really hard.

In front of Massey Theatre we still have a memory stone. It is nice to have these tangible things.” Prior to the day parole hearing, a friend of Richards launched an online petition against Perkin’s request for day parole.

De Vynck said $600,000 worth of equipment is urgently needed at the hospital. The foundation, which just unveiled the new expanded maternity ward, fundraises to help provide equipment.

by Matthew Claxton firstname.lastname@example.org
The big push is on for getting Langley ready to host the 2014 B.C. Seniors Games. Langley was awarded the games in 2012, and ever since then, from the nomination committee to the current board of directors and group of volunteers, a collection of local residents have been working to make sure everything is in place. So far, things are on track to get the games ready by their start on Sept. 9. “It looks like everything is as it should be,” said Michael Jackstien, vice president of the board overseeing the games. Along with operations manager Shirley Stewart, Jackstien gave the Langley Advance an overview of what’s happened so far and what the games will need to be a success in the next few months. The games will have close to 4,000
participants, from age 55 up. There are 25 sports and activities, spread across almost as many venues, from public rec centres to schools to private golf courses or bowling alleys. The list of sports and the venues are all confirmed, said Stewart. Two main things are still underway that will be necessary: finding sponsorship money and finding enough volunteers. “The more we raise, the better the games will be,” said Jackstien. The money won’t just go towards the games. “Money left over becomes a legacy for the City and Township,” Jackstien said. The second major need will be for another large group of volunteers, from within and outside of Langley. “We want to start the push for volunteers,” Jackstien said. The games already have about 400 signed up, but they’ll need 1,400 to 1,800 total to be a success. Stewart is not worried that Langley and its neighbours will step up to the plate. “Piece of cake,” she said of getting that many helpers. There are teams of volunteer managers for each directorate organizing

the games. The only issue she sees is getting students out. “Volunteering in September is a bit of a challenge, because school is back in,” Stewart said. However, there are still opportunities for individuals and groups of volunteers, including service clubs or groups from local businesses to donate some of their time to help out. Of course, many seniors are expected to help out as well. They’ll need people to work on medical, security, and promotions tasks. Several people from the Interior who helped with last year’s games in Kamloops have already offered to help as well. Langley already has a wealth of experience in running games of this kind, having hosted the B.C. Special Olympics and the B.C. Summer Games in recent years. In some ways, the Seniors Games are easier, noted Jackstien and Stewart. The adult participants look after their own housing and transportation and are more self-sufficient, leaving the organizers to concentrate on the games themselves.

Red hot Thunder spring to life
Langley’s senior A squad has won three straight games after starting the season at 0-3, but will face a huge test Wednesday when it hosts the leagueleading Victoria Shamrocks. by Troy Landreville
What a difference a week-anda-half can make. Langley Thunder players and coaches woke up Monday morning, May 26, with the realization that they had stumbled to an 0-3 start to their Western Lacrosse Association season. Adding to the misery, they were licking their wounds from a 15-3 drubbing at the hands of the host Maple Ridge Burrards the night before. Jump ahead to late Friday night, June 6, and the Thunder are arguably the surprise team of the WLA. They had just handed the Burnaby Lakers their first loss of the season, beating the hosts 12-8 at Burnaby’s Bill Copeland Arena. The victory was the Thunder’s third straight win and evened their record to 3-3. To kick off the streak, the Thunder avenged their blowout loss to the Burrards by beating them 11-7 at the Langley Events Centre (LEC) on May 28. “It’s a combination of things,” Thunder head coach Rod Jensen said, regarding his team’s recent string of success. “Against Maple Ridge, we got really embarrassed [on May 25], so the next game was a pride game, and our first home game, and that got ourselves going a little bit. Then we were able to have a full week off between games, and… get two wins at home with a very young team.” The surprise element isn’t simply attached to the Thunder’s win streak, but also that they are going to battle each night – dur-

Turner notched a hat trick while adding a pair of assists to his totals. Also having a productive night for the Thunder was Daniel McQuade, who tallied twice to go along with a single assist.

Iannucci scored once and added five assists, and Adam Will had a three-point night on a goal and two helpers. FINAL BUZZER: The Thunder will face a huge test this Wednesday (June 11), when the WLA-leading (and 4-0) Victoria Shamrocks visit the LEC to take on the Thunder at 7:45 p.m. Tickets are available at the LEC box office. Jensen knows the Thunder will have their work cut out for them Wednesday, and is guardedly optimistic when it comes to the remainder of the 18-game campaign. “We’re excited about the three wins, but the [team] is young so there will be a lot of ups and downs,” he said.

Newly acquired Langley Rivermen goaltender Tyrell King is coming off a fine season with the SJHL’s Kindersley Klippers. In 2013/14, he accumulated a 23-13-3 record with a 2.16 goals against average, .930 save percentage, and four shutouts.
Junior A hockey
’Men acquire puckstopper Tyrell King, 20, joins Langley as part of a threeteam swap that involved defenceman Viktor Dombrovskiy. The B.C. Hockey League season is three-and-a-half months away, but in the meantime, the Langley Rivermen have ensured they are set in the net. The Rivermen acquired veteran goaltender Tyrell King from the SJHL’s Kindersley Klippers as part of a threeway trade that sees defenceman Viktor Dombrovskiy sent to the Trail Smoke Eaters. To round out the deal, Trail is transferring defenceman Joel Webb to Kindersley. King is a 20-year-old native of Eston, Sask., and brings plenty of veteran experience to the Rivermen. The 6’ 180-pound goaltender is coming off a stellar season with the Klippers, posting a 23-13-3 record with a 2.16 goals against average and a .930 save percentage to go along with four shutouts.

Cardinals soar to Majors title
The North Langley Cardinals downed the North Langley Giants in the final to win the local Majors B Division crown.
It was a stunner of an upset to cap the Langley Majors B Division baseball playoffs. The newly crowned champions are the North Langley Cardinals, who downed the North Langley Giants 19-2 in the final of a playoff tournament that involved four 11- and 12-year-old baseball teams from Langley City and North Langley.
After winning only two games during the regular baseball season, the Cardinals were expected by most to make a quick exit in the playoffs. However, under the tutelage of head coach Mark Kredba, the team steadily improved during the regular season. Entering the playoffs, the No. 4seeded Cardinals were confident, believing they could be competitive with any of the other teams. In their first game, played June 1 at Zarrelli Diamond, they played the top-seeded Langley Yankees. The Yankees won 13-6. Playing a strong game at catcher and getting on base twice, Owen
Kredba was selected player of the game for the Cardinals. Brock Story had two base hits for the Cardinals. Fortunately for the Cardinals, the playoffs were a double knockout format so the team was still alive. However, if the Cardinals lost another game, their season would be over. In their June 3 game at Zarelli Field, the Cardinals faced Langley City’s B2s, with the winning team moving on and the losing team done for the year. The Cardinals won a nailbiter by a score of 12-11.
