Toy gun sparks shutdown at TWU Campus locked down by police Tuesday DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

Beloved sister had ‘amazing spirit’ GARY AHUJA Times Reporter

Like thousands of others, Htoo K’Bru Paw came to Canada from a refugee camp in Thailand three years ago. The family fled Burma, or Myanmar, and on

their journey to the camp, they would sleep in the jungle, using banana leaves as blankets. After a few years in the camp, the family of 14 — the parents and a dozen children — settled in Langley, like countless other Karen refugees. “She had this amazing spirit,” marvelled Margaret Kunst, the operation director for the PuCKS (Promoting Community through Kids in Sport). “She was super energetic, and she loved sports, she was a great soccer player.” She also loved skating and was looking forward to giving hockey a try. Kunst met the family through her work with

PuCKS, which uses sports as a tool to help keep kids in school. But last year, Htoo Htoo, the name everyone called her, became sick. The 10-year-old was diagnosed with a blood disorder, and despite a successful transfusion from one of her brothers, the infection was too much for the little girl with the radiant smile and beautiful laugh. “It was such a long process because they went to the hospital with so much hope but as the months went on, she would get infection after infection,” Kunst said.

A report of a man with a handgun at Trinity Western University led to a police shutdown of the Langley campus Tuesday afternoon. It turned out a visitor to the Neufeld Science Centre had brought a toy. The report came in shortly before 1 p.m. At least 10 police vehicles and the Air One helicopter responded. Officers from the Langley RCMP, Emergency Response Team, traffics section and undercover units blocked traffic from entering or leaving the university for about an hour. When the man who prompted the report left the building with his wife and children he was greeted by armed officers. He was carrying a plastic toy gun which had been confused with a real hand gun by a witness who called police. He was released at the scene. The man was not a TWU student, police said. Langley RCMP issued a reminder to the public to be cognizant that a toy gun can be easily mistaken as real gun. “The response to the report of a weapon in a school or public location is taken very seriously and police will act accordingly to ensure the public’s safety” the statement read.

Aldergrove man faces charges

Mark Warawa

MP probably won’t be flying to Ottawa Sunday Minority government expected to fall as opposition parties unite

DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

Most Fridays when Parliament is in session, Langley Conservative MP Mark Warawa gets on a flight in Ottawa to come home for the weekend. This Friday (today) Warawa was sure he’d be coming home, but not so sure he’d be making his usual return flight. “If the opposition brings us down, I won’t be flying back Sunday,” he told The Times on Wednesday. Most politicians and pundits expected the minority Conservative government would be defeated Friday (today) by the opposition Liberal, NDP and Bloc Quebecois parties on a non-confidence vote, forcing a federal election. The high probability of an imminent election follows rejection by all three opposition parties of the latest federal budget, which was brought down on Tuesday by Finance Minister Jim Flaherty. Warawa said he would prefer not to inflict yet another vote on the electorate, but if it is called, he will be ready. He has a campaign office picked out, signs have been printed and an experienced Conservative constituency association of roughly 1,000 potential volunteers is ready to go, if required. “I would start [campaigning] first thing Monday morning” Warawa said. Even before the fate of the government was clear, Warawa was firing shots at the opposition parties over the potential cancellation of the just-introduced federal budget. “We need to stay focused on the economy,” Warawa stated on his website. “This isn’t the time for an unnecessary election, we need to stay the course to help create jobs and economic growth.”

It is the same message Prime Minster Stephen Harper and other Tories have been delivering during the lead-up to Friday’s vote, with Harper calling a forced election “useless.” Warawa and the battle-tested local Tories have won every election since the new electoral district of Langley was created in 2004, always by comfortable margins. Warawa has seen his margin of victory increase every time, from a 48 per cent share of the vote in 2004, to 52 per cent in 2006 and 62 per cent in 2008. But three wins in a row do not guarantee a fourth, and his rivals are hoping to end Warawa’s streak. Liberal candidate Rebecca Darnell has had plenty of time to prepare.

“I’m as ready as I’ll ever be.” Rebecca Darnell

Liberal candidate

The local lawyer was nominated in August, 2009, and already has a website, Facebook page and a Twitter feed up and running. Her signs have been run off and she has a campaign office picked out, too. “I’m as ready as I’ll ever be,” she told The Times. She’s been taking shots at the incumbent, observing tongue-in-cheek that Warawa has “missed his Mark” on some local issues. “I will represent Langley in Ottawa regardless of which party forms government,” she said on her website, an apparent reference to polls that predict another minority government likely should an election call come. Darnell has made arrangements to have

her workload looked after by other lawyers at her firm, but notes that some cases could still require her personal attention during a campaign. The New Democrats improved their position from third place to second in the last Langley election, but that was more because of a drop in the Liberal numbers than an increase in NDP votes. NDP hopeful Piotr Majkowski, who bills himself as Langley’s first openly gay candidate, has used his Facebook page to take swipes at the incumbent’s position on gay rights. “I think it’s amazing that there are still politicians out there that oppose same-sex marriage” said Majkowski. He has also blasted Warawa over the deal with the provincial government that produced the much-hated HST in B.C. calling it an “unfair tax shift” Majkowski plans to take a leave of absence from his job as a nurse in the pediatric department at Langley Memorial Hospital. Green candidate Carey Poitras is a political novice who is making her first run for office and hasn’t had as much time to prepare. “I’ve just started pricing out signs,” Poitras told The Times. She described her planned campaign as “not gigantic,” involving around half a dozen volunteers. She will continue to operate her homebased business during a campaign, relying on her ability to set her own schedule to juggle work and election demands. A fourth challenger, Craig Nobbs, is running for the Pirate Party of Canada, which is modeled on the identically named Swedish party that concentrates on issues of copyright reform, privacy, net neutrality and open government.

A 23-year-old Aldergrove man has been charged with robbing Montecristo Jewellers at the Oakridge Centre shopping mall in Vancouver on Tuesday (March 22). Robert Steven Gallagher is currently in custody and faces trial on one count each of assault, use of a firearm during the commission of a robbery, and use of an imitation firearm. Gallagher is said to be known to police. Around 4:30 p.m., two men entered the jewelry store to rob it. A security guard was assaulted and pepper spray was discharged in the vicinity of the store, Vancouver police said. One suspect was arrested at the scene. The other made his escape in a waiting late ’90s green Chevrolet Astro van driven by a third suspect. The suspect who fled the mall is described as a Middle Eastern man in his twenties. The VPD Robbery/Assault Unit is continuing to investigate and is asking anyone who has information about the robbery or who witnessed the robbery and has yet to speak with police to contact the VPD Robbery/Assault Unit at 604-717-2541 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Inaccurate caption For the record: The caption on the page 3 photo that appeared with the article “Bulls Shipped out” in the Wednesday, March 23 edition of The Times contained incorrect information. It should have read: “Westgen intern Kendall Chan loads semen into a tank (called a biostat) for shipment. The semen is transported frozen in liquid nitrogen.”

“And she would fight it, and she would be good, but then, wham, there would be another one.” Htoo Htoo fought to the end. “She never complained,” Kunst said. “She battled right to the end. Knowing that her family supported her, she was going to fight for them.” Even when the doctors told the family that their daughter and sister had just a few hours left to live, she battled. “They thought it would be a couple of hours, but it was 24 hours, she hung on and hung on. Just a fighter.” The little girl finally succumbed to the complications from the transfusion on Feb. 3 at B.C. Children’s Hospital, surrounded by her family. “It was just heart wrenching,” Kunst said. “To come here and have this opportunity for a better life and then have it cut short like that.” This past Saturday (March 19), the little girl known for her beautiful smile, love of laughter, amazing spirit and energy, was honoured the best way those who knew her could think of — through sports.

“We really wanted to remember her spirit,” said Kunst, who helped organize a cane ball tournament, with members of the men’s and women’s soccer teams at Trinity Western University. The first annual Htoo Htoo Friendly Sepak Takraw Tournament of Champions was held at TWU. It featured 10 teams, and around 45 players, from Langley, Surrey and Vancouver. The sport, also known as cane ball, is a combination of volleyball and soccer, and is very popular among the Karen. “She was a happy, friendly and incredibly athletic girl who loved her family, friends and she loved all sport,” Kunst said. “She embodies the spirit of the tournament and that is why we named it in her honour.” Coincidentally, Saturday would have been Htoo Htoo’s 11th birthday. “She would be very happy; she was in heaven looking down at the tournament enjoying it,” her older brother, Poe Wah, 18, who was the bone marrow donor, said through a translator. He also played in the tournament, along with another brother, K’Paw Doh. “It was a chance for everybody who knew her to honour her by

playing in this tournament and having fun and remembering her in a happy way,” Poe Wah said. “She would have loved it because people from the Karen community came from all over.” The whole family was involved in the tournament, with the family selecting the trophies and medals, and the dad picking the most valuable player. “The parents were just thrilled that we were able to remember their daughter that way,” Kunst said. Poe Wah talked about how his little sister was so easy going and never complained. When the family was going somewhere, with 13 kids — the youngest was born in Langley last year— it was inevitable that not everyone could go. But Htoo Htoo, the eighth child, never complained. “That is how she was, easy going and content,” her brother said. Too many stories stuck out for him to pick one, and it dredged up painful memories, just thinking about his sister, but perhaps the thing he missed most about his little sister was her laughter and great sense of humour, he said.

These animals are among the 17 bottle-fed lambs which were stolen from farms in the Aldergrove area on March 23.

Lamb-napping in Langley Multiple livestock robberies at Aldergrove farms Langley RCMP are looking for a dark full-sized truck that may have something to do with the theft of lambs from two Aldergrove farms on Wednesday (March 23). Seventeen bottle-fed lambs were stolen from a barn in the 23900 block of 14A Avenue that morning, while five older lambs were stolen from a farm in the 1500 block of 248 Street around the same time. The first theft probably happened around 3:30 a.m., which is when the owner heard a disturbance. The barn had been secured but not locked. The four- to six-week-old lambs weigh between 15 and 20 lbs each and are described as being solid white and black with white. The second theft occurred some time after the owner had put the lambs away for the night in a secure

barn. The three month-old lambs in the second theft are approximately 60 pounds, four of them black and one a rare rusty red color. One of the lambs was located the next morning in a neighbour’s yard. The gate was closed but not chained as normal. In the second incident, the owner noticed a dark full-sized truck parked with the engine running near the property on the west side of 248 Street in the evening shortly after she had secured the lambs for the night. A number of local farms have been hit by animal thieves lately. On Feb. 28 in the 24800 block of 10 Avenue, six ducks, 65 chickens and some feed were stolen. Previously at the same farm, on Dec. 27, 2010, 17 ducks were taken. No suspects have been identified in any of the thefts. Anyone with any information that may assist in any of these investigations are asked to contact the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. Or you can leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

March is Nutrition Month “More people have died from eating than ever starved to death” – Benjamin Franklin

The proliferation of fast foods and/or processed food combined with the infiltration of toxic chemicals creates an imbalance in our metabolism that blocks absorption. Our ability to properly absorb our food can also be affected by food sensitivities (or allergies as they are mistakenly called). A sensitivity is the result of a deficiency of nutrients that can be corrected with a combination of acupuncture and food cures. One very common example is a lactose intolerance that can be corrected with the proper balance of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and herbs.

Q:

My child struggles in school. She has homework every night just to keep up because she doesn’t finish her work in class. Her father thinks she’s just lazy. Is she lazy or is there more going on? - Cathy We assess hundreds of struggling students each year and laziness is usually not the real problem. At least 90 percent of them are weak in auditory processing abilities.This means that they do not process speech as efficiently as others their age. They may miss two or more words in every sentence. With that many holes in what they hear, these children do not receive the same instruction as their classmates. They don’t know what to do and so can’t complete their work in class. An assessment will determine if auditory processing deficits are the problem and possible solutions.

Langley woman stands accused of operating Vancouver bawdy house A 45-year-old Langley woman has been charged with keeping a common bawdy house and living on the avails of prostitution following a raid by the Vancouver Police vice quad last week. Danielle Boseley was arrested Friday March 18 at “Broadway Bodycare” at 1926 West Broadway, a self-styled “Health Enhancement Centre.” Thirteen women and two male customers were in the shop at the time. Vancouver Police spokesperson Const.

Standoff ends peacefully

I’ve heard of a study that claims that older people with hearing loss are at greater risk of developing dementia. Can you say more about that? - Mrs. S. Over 18-years the Baltimore Longitudinal Study on Aging followed 639 people who were initially dementia-free and found that as they lost hearing their risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s increased. What does this tell us? Perhaps the same things that cause hearing loss cause dementia. Or is it that as people have problems with hearing they withdraw from the world and don’t keep their brains fit? When we train children and adults in auditory abilities, we find that their reasoning abilities improve, so I think that as hearing deteriorates so does overall brain fitness. This week I post-tested a 10-year-old whose reasoning abilities improved by eight years after only four months of aggressive auditory training. A good brain fitness program should include auditory training.

Q:

Every evening our son practices reading with us but he isn’t improving. Why? - Jim Reading problems are caused by deficits in phonological processing abilities. This means that your son is unable to process the sounds within words efficiently.With the help of special programs like Fast ForWord or PACE this ability can be trained. Until that happens it is likely that he will continue to struggle with reading no matter how much he practices.

Lindsey Houghton said the investigation was the result of complaints from people living nearby. “Some people in the area were complaining about the sexual noises that were coming from the business,” Houghton said. A sign on the door of Broadway Bodycare on Wednesday said the business was “closed for renovations.” Boseley, who has no previous criminal record, has been released from jail with

Motorists attempting to jump the Aldergrove Border crossing line-up at Zero Avenue and 264 Street on March 19 were dealt with by Langley RCMP Traffic Services after several complaints were made. Many of the complaints stem from the southbound line of motorists waiting to cross the border, sometimes for over an hour, who become frustrated when vehicles approaching 264 Street on Zero Avenue cut into the line without being subjected to the wait time. There have been signs posted for the past year on Zero Avenue, advising motorists there is no border access from both the east and west approach on Zero Avenue. The signage

than 60-minute border lineup by disregarding both of the “No Left Turn� and “No Right Turn� signs. Police wrote over 30 violations tickets in about 60 minutes that day, mostly for intersection infractions. The majority of violators were locals who know the stretch of roadway but still attempted to disregard the posted signs.

“Langley RCMP will continue to attend the intersection, enforcing the posted signs,� said spokesperson Cst. Jillian Roberts.“With the summer months soon to be upon us, it is likely traffic volume at our border crossings will increase. Please exercise patience with your fellow motorists and obey all signage as you approach the border.�

Extend Your Vehicle's Life Between bad road conditions and long idling times, winter driving causes a lot of wear and tear on your vehicle. Spring Maintenance is the best way to help your car rrecover. A good rule of thumb is tthat a change of season equals a cchange of oil. Changing your car's ooil and filter every three months or 55,000 kms, whichever comes first, will ensure that your car operates w aat peak efficiency. Changing oil regularly is the single most important thing that can be done to extend the life of your vehicle and keep it running smoothly.

Overpass inadequacy

Electorate unimpressed

T

he repairs to the 200 Street overpass that took place over the past week are yet another sad reminder of the complete inadequacy of the overpass, and things will only get worse as Langley grows and Highway 1 is expanded. Replacement of the two-lane overpass was a long-running soap opera in the late 1990s and early 2000s. When the design of the new overpass was announced, the Township council of the day was horrified, as council members rightly envisioned gridlock as the result of numerous traffic lights. The overpass design was wholly based on financing it through selling off prime portions of land that were adjacent to the old overpass. That required what was called a “single point” interchange, with traffic lights in the midst of the span. It is important to note that this idea emanated from the NDP provincial government of the day — not from the local council or the community. Despite a number of workable alternatives that were presented, the new BC Liberal government stuck with the proposal, at least partially because a contract had already been signed. Thankfully, the overpass was built to six lanes, as the prospect of the Golden Ears Bridge was on the horizon. However, the many traffic lights slow traffic to a crawl at busy times, and in rush hour, it can often take 10 to 15 minutes to get from one side of the freeway to the other. It can be argued that there has been little improvement over the old two-lane span. There have also been a number of structural problems with the overpass, the most recent of which was repaired in the past week. When a similar overpass upgrade went ahead at the Mount Lehman interchange in Abbotsford, a much better design involving flyovers and traffic circles was used, and traffic congestion there is minimal, even though it too is located in a rapidly-growing area and is the gateway to the Abbotsford Airport. It’s too bad that Langley is now burdened with such an inadequate structure for its busiest freeway interchange, and that the community will be stuck with it for decades to come.

s the politicians in Ottawa get all hot and bothered about a possible federal election, they all should keep one fact in mind. The electorate doesn’t want anything to do with a spring election. Tuesday’s budget was slated to come off as fiscally conservative and even welcoming news on the deficit front. A couple of concessions to the New Democratic Party can be seen as support for seniors and lowerincome Canadians and just may keep the government from falling on the merits of the budget. A more likely scenario is that the Tories may fall on an oppositiondominated Commons committee recommending that the government be found in contempt of Parliament due to several recent scandals. And the Tories certainly have weighty baggage when it comes to ethical conduct, including a cabinet minister admitting altering a document after first claiming she hadn’t, charges of violating election spending laws, possible breaches of lobbying laws, etc. All are items the Tories should be held accountable for and take action on. However, before the opposition gets too self-righteous on the way to the polls there’s another thing to keep in mind. Canadians have put up with two minority governments in a row and even though the Tories have stumbled through too many scandals for anyone’s liking, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper doesn’t elicit warm and fuzzy feelings from virtually anyone, the Liberals and NDP have gained no ground in opinion polls. In fact they’ve fallen behind. So any attempt by the opposition to force an election at this juncture, no matter how well-intentioned, will likely be frowned upon by the electorate who will see it as an expensive and unnecessary exercise to maintain the status quo. —Vernon Morning Star The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Nelson family expresses thanks to community Editor: The Nelson family (parents Brenda and Wayne, and sisters Chrystie and Alecsa) would like to extend their deepest thanks and appreciation to all those who have helped them through this most painful and difficult time of losing our son and brother, Coleton Nelson (#10.) Although there are too many to name individually, we would like to acknowledge the tremendous efforts and contributions made by the following individuals or groups: the Parent Advisory Committees of North Otter Elementary School, Coghlan Fundamental School, and Betty Gilbert Elementary School; the Aldergrove Minor Hockey Association; Michael McRae, vice-president of marketing for Sofina Foods Inc.; Aldergrove Save-On Foods; Sven Freybe of Freybe Gourmet Foods; Roger Antoniazzi of Canada Bread (Langley); Travis Lowe of Maple Leaf Foods and Ken

Clark of Overwaitea Food Group. We would also like to extend our deepest thanks to our family, friends, and the community at large for the overwhelming love and support we have received. A special thank you to Uncle Wendall Warman for printing the remembrance hockey cards of Coleton. To all the above mentioned, your kindness in supplying food, meals, flowers, fund-raising, emotional support and just being there have been so appreciated. And lastly, to all of you who have contributed to the Coleton Nelson #10 Trust Fund, thanks again for your amazing generosity. Our son’s legacy will be to help provide financial assistance to other young hockey players who love the game, just as he did. Thanks again. Brenda, Wayne, Chrystie and Alecsa Nelson, Langley

Councillors need to work for the community Editor: It looks like the six-pack of Township council (plus one) is at it again, with their continued infatuation and persistence to curb the mayor’s drive for positive change in the Township. When will they finally wake up and realize they are in their position to do what is right for the taxpayers and to do what is best for the community, and not to scrutinize, micromanage and politicize every move Mayor Rick Green makes?

It seems the six- or seven-pack would prefer to tie up, gag, and shove Green in a corner, while they keep their hands comfortably placed on their seats beneath their bottoms. But when they do or are forced to get involved, they go against all common sense and the wishes of the taxpayers. I found it humourous to hear Councillor Jordan Bateman tell the public that councillors don’t just get blank cheques to hand out whenever they feel the need. Yet he and the rest of

his pack recently signed a big cheque for $8 million to the builders of the Events Centre, with seemingly no repercussions. The Events Centre payments is only one of the many blunders council and staff have orchestrated together over the past two years. The time will come next November when we the taxpayers must hold them accountable for their actions. Tyler de Boer, Langley

Attack ads should be replaced with civil debate Editor: Let’s stop the endless attacks ads in Canadian politics. As a young Canadian and as a concerned voter, I would like to see fewer attack ads created by the political parties of Canada and directed toward other candidates. Why can the parties not engage in civil debate instead? Statistically, my generation of Canadians, aged 18-24, are the least active demographic in both voting and party activity. If political candidates really want support and attention from all citizens, including the young, they should do more to educate the public on what they can do for the people, and not just use attack ads on one another. When attack ads are put on television, they rarely address or talk about any issues that

Leave people alone The

Canadians deal with on a day-to-day basis. Instead, we see attacks like the Conservatives’ recent ad about Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff. The ad talks about how Michael Ignatieff has been living and working in the U.S. and that he really doesn’t care about Canada unless he’s in office. Instead of spending money to try and show how bad their opponents are, why don’t political parties try to show the public how their own policies can help Canadians? The NDP, for example, could have a short 30-second ad that could show how their party cares about the needs of young people, showing how they will create a plan to help university students with health care. Politicians today are supposed to be role

models for Canadian citizens, yet they still put out ads that attack one another rather than sitting down and debating vital issues. Fear has become a common tool used by different parties to convince citizens to vote for them. One ad created by the Conservatives attacked the NDP leader Jack Layton, claiming he would form a coalition with the Bloc Quebecois. His idea would bother many Canadians and the slogan: “Jack Layton, he’s done it before, he’ll do it again, and Canada will pay the price,� seems to have helped the approval rate for Conservatives. As citizens, we need to demand more responsible and educational debate about real issues. Kurt Renvall, Kwantlen Polytechnic University

Editor: I read the article “Teen club looks to expand,� (The Times, March 23) and had to laugh. Seriously, this is a joke. Residents who live in the nearby area would like nothing better than for this place to shut down and are now even in discussion with police to create a Block Watch program for the nights the club is open. I noticed the article has said nothing about the fact that neighbours are complaining to city hall on a weekly basis nor stated that the teenagers who attended on opening night were urinating in residents’ yards behind garbage cans and bushes. Nothing is said about the fact that teenagers were being asked to leave the club by police on opening night or that they were telling police off with extremely foul language. Nothing was said about how almost every night there are police cars at the dance club. At one point on Saturday night, there were four cars in front of it and officers were walking up and down the line in front of the club. The police shouldn’t have to be patroling this club all the time. How about the fact that teenagers have been caught on Eastleigh Crescent drinking almost every night the club is open? Or how about the fact that the street has seen an influx of garbage? What about the sign at the nearby building that was broken by the teenagers who attended this club? I walked by the club on March 19 and people who live across the street had lawn chairs out watching the drama. One person even said it was better than the show “Cops.� I live in the area and I can tell you that this club has caused nothing but problems for residents. I seriously doubt that Langley City is going to give James Thom a permit to bring even more teenagers and problems into our neighbourhood. Danielle Arbour, Langley

Township dims lights On Saturday, March 26, the Township will join the fight against climate change by turning off its lights between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. during Earth Hour. Earth Hour is an annual global effort designed to make a difference for the planet. “Individual participation and simple changes can make a big difference in the fight against climate change, which is the biggest environmental threat to our planet,” said Township environmental co-ordinator Ryan Schmidt. “That’s what Earth Hour is all about. Participating in Earth Hour and switching off your lights for one hour is a simple and easy way to show that you want to help.” During the event, lights at the Township’s Civic Facility, operations centre, libraries, and Langley Centennial Museum will be switched off. Nonessential lights at recreation centres and leased facilities, as well as at fire halls, community police stations, and the Langley RCMP detachment will also be turned off. The Langley Events Centre will also support Earth Hour. Options to darken the LEC include shutting down the refrigeration plant and maintenance level lights over the arena, and turning off all signs outside the building, including the large pylon sign next to 200 Street. Storage room lights will also be turned off, as will lights in the gym if no one is booked to play. The Township’s participation in Earth Hour will not affect the operation of public facilities that will be open at that time. Lights required for security, parking, or safety will remain on, but will be dimmed or reduced if possible.

Unity gives power to the people, and through the Fort Langley Community Association, the people of Fort Langley may soon rid their streets of truck traffic. Noting that there are soil deposit applications for two Glen Valley properties, FLCA vice-chairman Connie Blundy asked Township council on March 14 to re-draw the truck route so that it eliminates the heavy vehicles from using village streets. Council agreed to pursue that option with staff, and to ask the City of Abbotsford to modify access to the sites so that travel through Fort Langley is eliminated. The applications are for the Nesteruk property at 8645 256 St., and the Bezalel/ Caravetta property at 25476 and 25528 73 Ave. Although the applications comply with

After Fort Langley-Albion ferry service ceased in July, 2009, Glover Road was withdrawn from TransLink’s Major Road Network. However, council was advised that because truck routes have regional impact, the Township must consult TransLink before truck routes are eliminated. The Nesteruk application is for a soil deposit permit that would allow 41,000 cubic metres of soil to be trucked in, raising the land by half a metre to provide winter pasture for cattle. The amount is the equivalent to 5,800 single truck loads. In April, 2010, the Township was forced to issue a stop-work order on the Nesteruk property after 3,000 cubic metres of fill was deposited on the land without a valid permit in place, and for roads that were left dirty. continued, PAGE 16

the Township’s Soil Removal Bylaw, both were deferred so that a public meeting can be held. Blundy told council that both projects would impact truck traffic volumes through the village. “I have never understood why we have a truck route through Fort Langley,� she told council. Blundy asked why a 2004 Township staff recommendation to re-route trucks way from Glover Road failed to materialize. She warned that when work starts on rebuilding the IGA store on Glover Road and Mavis Street, there will be more truck traffic in and out of the village. The store was destroyed by fire on Jan. 4. Asked by Councillor Kim Richter if Fort Langley was looking for a permanent ban on trucks in the village, Blundy replied, “A total ban would be absolutely wonderful.�

CHERRY TREES GONE

Open Fall 2011 Independent living with spacious, comfortable common areas, and five suite types

John GORDON/Langley Times

A school district employee prepares to install new plants in front of West Langley Elementary School on Wednesday. Cherry trees were removed because the roots could cause the sidewalk to crack and pose a tripping hazard. Some bushes with sharp thorns were also replaced with other plants for safety reasons. New trees will be planted to replace the cherry trees.

The Bezalel/Caravetta application is for 14,200 cubic metres of soil for pasture. The depth of fill is one metre. Soil deposit applications have a history of contention in the Township, sometimes raising concerns of flooding, and creating visual blight on neighbouring properties. Roeland Zwaag, the Township’s manager of design and construction, gave an outline of the new policies and measures Mark Bakken the Township has adopted to reduce the potential impact to the Township and its residents, and place tighter control on applications. Monthly monitoring will track, for example, the volume of fill and number of truck loads, Zwaag said. However, not everyone on council was assured. Mayor Rick Green said he was not comfortable that all possible controls are in place, and wondered about the cost and effectiveness of monitoring. “The only 100 per cent solution is for the Township to no longer support non-farm applications,” administrator Mark Bakken told council.

Boost for child care providers Twenty-five licensed childcare providers in Langley and Aldergrove will share a bonus of $36,235 this spring, thanks to a one-time funding boost for licensed group child-care providers who receive money under the Child Care Operating Funding program. This funding is to help providers during the transition period associated with the implementation of full-day Kindergarten. It is anticipated that this licence category may be impacted by a lower enrolment in their childcare facilities as a result of more five-year-olds attending full-day Kindergarten in September.

The children in these facilities are aged 30 months to school age. Providers can use this funding to assist with the cost of providing quality child-care services. They can purchase items that enhance developmental opportunities for younger learners. This may include books, toys, arts and crafts supplies, and other educational items, as well as minor capital enhancements to improve the quality of the facility. The funds may also be used for professional development and training. “Many families in Langley will see a direct benefit from this funding boost. These extra funds

will go a long way in easing our community’s transition to fullday Kindergarten,” said Langley MLA Mary Polak. The ministry of children and family development has allocated $1 million in one-time funding for approximately 900 licensed group child-care providers. The funding is being applied to nearly 23,000 child-care spaces across B.C. with an average payment of more than $1,000 to each provider.

New board takes charge of Canada Day The torch for organizing the 2011 Canada Day celebration in Langley has been passed. After five years at the helm, chairperson Vince McKay announced that he and his committee are stepping down. A new volunteer board has taken office and the new team is ready to go. After months of

OFF

consideration, McKay and vice-chair Cora Boecker approached members of the Langley International Festival committee, who were already familiar with the responsibility of organizing a community event, and a plan was developed. In the past 15 years the various Canada Day volunteer boards have contributed countless hours and welcomed thousands of people to both the original site at Langley Airport and the current site at McLeod Park. “It has been exciting to be a part of growing this event which has become a family tradi-

tion for so many” said Boecker. “We wanted to ensure that this tradition continues.” Travis Strain, a local financial planner, is the new chairperson. He is joined by Sharon Newbery as his vice-chair. Their team is just about complete and the board positions are almost filled. “Now that the changeover is complete, you can feel the energy and excitement from the board to be taking on this new venture and continue building on the success over the past 15 years,” said Strain. Some of the team members’ names are

familiar, because the people working on this new board are some of the same people who organize the successful Langley International Festival. Last August’s event was held on the grounds at Langley Events Centre and R.E. Mountain Secondary. “We appreciate and are grateful that members of the Langley International Festival were excited to take on the organization of the Langley Canada Day celebrations and wish them continued success in the years to come,” said McKay. Planning for the twoday Canada Day event,

held June 30 and July 1, is well underway and the organizers want to tell the community to prepare for a great Canada Day. “It’s going to be fun for the whole family with a lot of the format staying the same, but with some new twists too,” said Lilianne Fuller, media director for the event. With all community celebrations, there is always a need for volunteer support from the community. If you are interested in helping or want more information about the event call 604-522-6232 or email info@langleycanadaday.ca.

WIDE PLANK HARDWOOD LTD.

Golf course tee time moves closer South Aldergrove residents tell council of road safety concerns Times Reporter

A golf course which received tentative approval almost 20 years ago passed a major hurdle on March 14 when council gave third reading to a rezoning bylaw. Emerald Springs Farm Corp. has applied to rezone a 112 acre site at 673 272 St., from rural zone (which has a minimum lot size of 19.76 acres) to rural golf course zone. Council also approved a development permit application and a liquor licence for the 60-seat club house.

The 18-hole course will be built at 673 - 272 St. Don Smith was one of only two speakers at the hearing. A resident of Pioneer Park to the south of the course, Smith told council that Pioneer Park, an estate of 244 mobile homes, has organized a club for golfers. While they will have a course closer to home, they and other residents are concerned about safety on 272 Street. Between 8 Avenue and 0 Avenues, 272 Street is a very narrow road with an ‘S’ bend, he pointed out. It is a route that many Pioneer Park

residents like to take as they walk to Aldergrove Regional Lake Park, situated at the southeast corner of 272 Street and 8 Avenue. He urged council to widen the road so that it is safer for pedestrians and their dogs. As the property is in the Agricultural Land Reserve, the golf course will require the approval of the Agricultural Land Commission. The golf course owner, Dean Hall, told council that he is looking forward to “something positive” for south Aldergrove. Advertisement

Spring has finally arrived. With the long-waited warmth comes the spring thaw – and with it, the danger of water damage. Water damage can appear slowly, such as a water spot, or be instantaneous. Either way, it almost always results in rotting wood, mold, rusting metal – and devastating costs. That’s why, if water causes damage to your home, BCAA advises you to act quickly to prevent further damage. Follow these steps to get started: 1. Locate and shut off your main water supply line to prevent further water from entering your home.

HOME INSURANCE WITH LORI TAYLOR

2. Contact your insurance company first as they can start your claim and send out help get the clean-up started. 3. Determine what kind of water you are dealing with. There are three types of water that have varying effects on your health:

HELP US EXPAND

www.kidsinthegrove.com 604-882-4909

b. Grey water typically results from toilet bowls, dishwashers or washing machines. It contains some contaminants and could cause sickness.

Visit our website to view our summer calendars. Kids in the Grove is looking to expand to a third location. If you’re interested in starting up a day care in your school, or know of a local school renting classroom space, please contact Kim at grovekids@gmail.com

4. Next, determine the source of the water leak - only if safe to do so. This will help determine what kind of contractor you need to help remedy the problem. It’s important to think safety first – if you have black water, it’s best to vacate the home.

INSURANCE OUTLOOK

a. Clean water typically results from an overflowing sink or a leaky appliance hose. It does not pose a health risk.

Both locations open for the summer; offering Out of School Care!

c. Black water is mainly from sewage and other contaminated water sources. It is highly unsanitary and can cause severe illness. People with compromised immune systems, respiratory problems or allergies, or who are under 2 years or elderly should leave the house.

5. Prop up furniture in the water damage area to keep it off the ground. Also, remove valuables and keepsakes. Avoid taking the wet furniture to a dry room as this could spread the contamination. Last, but not least, ensure you have adequate home insurance coverage. Some water losses are limited in coverage, so it’s necessary to have a yearly review of your coverage needs with an experienced BCAA Insurance Advisor. For more information on preventing water damage, consult your local BCAA Insurance Advisor today or visit www.bcaa.com/water.

Quick and easy ways to stop your dog from Pulling by Sarah Harvey, Harvey Pet Food & Supplies

We all know that exercise is important part of life for us. Dogs can benefit from exercise in many of the same ways as a human. Regular exercise will help your dog maintain a healthy weight, reduce stress, and encourages healthy behavior. Exercise is both mentally and physically stimulating for a dog. A good 45min to an hour daily exercise will helps keep a dog healthy and balanced. Many destructive behaviors such as chewing, marking, barking and digging can be caused due to a lack of stimulation and exercise. The most effective form of exercise is as simple as a minimum 45 minute leashed walk with your dog. Many people choose to use local dog park as their pet’s form of regular exercise. Although the dog park is a great place for your dog to socialize and let loose, they can also develop bad manners or even get injured from playing too hard. The healthiest and safest form of exercise is a structured walk. A true structured walk is when the owner guides the dog on the walk rather than the dog, and the dog shouldn’t be able to pull the owner all over the place trying to mark every lamp post and hydrant on the block. Unfortunately, walking the dog isn’t always as simple as a stroll in the park. Today there are some great anti-pulling halters and harness that enable the owner to correct the pulling problem without injuring the dog or the owner. The Halti has been a popular tool on the market over the past 5 years. The Halti is a head halter and the leash connects underneath the dog’s chin, similar to how a horse halter fits. Generally the dog will respond right away and stop pulling, allowing almost anyone to walk the dog carefree. Unfortunately the halti isn’t as effective on short nosed dogs because of its design. In that case the Easywalk harness may be a better suited product for your dog. The Easywalk harness looks a lot like a regular harness except that it connect in the front of the chest rather than from the middle of the back. The Easywalk harness is designed to tighten across the chest which will stop the dog from pulling. Many may find that the harness easier to use because it doesn’t go over the dogs nose. Nevertheless they are both very effective and humane tools to stop your dog from pulling on the leash during the walk. Both the Easywalk and the Halti are very quick and simple ways to stop your dog from pulling on the leash so you can both enjoy your walks.

Season for Langley Township burning permits approaches When it comes to land clearing and yard cleaning, burning is the cheapest way to get rid of unwanted trees, branches, and other natural debris.

But what’s good for the pocketbook is not always great for the environment, or for people’s health. That’s why the Township of Langley Fire

Department is trying to strike a balance by holding burning seasons during specific times of the year, issuing burning permits, and relying on the

co-operation of Mother Nature — and the common sense of those doing the burning. “We don’t want to be prohibitive,” said assistant chief Pat

Walker, “but we also need to be safe and fair. We don’t want people to abuse it.” “We don’t want to inundate the air with particulates,” Walker

said, noting that many people are sensitive to the small particles of pollution smoke produces. While many municipalities have banned

outdoor burning altogether, the Township allows it on a limited basis. As a compromise, burning seasons are held only twice a year. The spring session will run April 1 to 30, and those who want to participate must purchase a burning permit from the Township’s Civic Facility, Fire Hall 6 in Murrayville, the Operations Centre, or at the Aldergrove, W.C. Blair, Walnut Grove, or Willoughby Community Centres. For those doing yard and garden clean up, incidental outdoor burning permits are $20, and are only available for properties half an acre or larger. Permits are not issued for the urban areas of Aldergrove, Brookswood, Fort Langley, Murrayville, Walnut Grove, and Willoughby. When a permit is purchased, Township staff will check the address to see if the land is within the allowed burning area, to ensure there is enough separation between properties and that no fire risk is posed to others nearby. Yard clean-up fires must be out by dusk. Land clearing burning permits, which are $100, can only be issued by Fire Hall 6 in Murrayville, and only for properties larger than 4.2 acres. Walker advised that many requirements must be met before a permit is issued. Before starting a land clearing fire, permit holders must check Metro Vancouver’s air index. If wind and air conditions are not favourable, burning will not be allowed. Only material indigenous to the property can be burned, and less expensive incidental permits cannot be used for land clearing. As well, a 15-day break must occur between each 72-hour burning period. Permit sales start the last week of March and Walker recommends that those who want to burn start preparing now. Walker said that if rules are violated, fire officials can revoke permits and issue tickets and fines. In 2010, 228 burning violation tickets were issued, and in the first two months of this year, 20 tickets were issued to people for burning debris outside the designated season.

Superior quality 1 and 2 bedroom homes AND a 1.9% mortgage* We are very happy homeowners. Home ownership wasn’t something we’d considered until Cornerstone came along. One look at the showhome (nice) and a conversation with their mortgage-savvy sales team, and we were sold. We walked in on a whim, thinking, “There’s no way we can afford this”, and walked out on top of the world. Our folks agree � Cornerstone is a smart decision. Marcon has a great reputation; they’ve been around as long as we’ve been alive. And the best part is we can still afford to go on vacation, thanks to our low monthly payment.

Kwantlen team third

A team of Kwantlen Polytechnic University business students placed third at the prestigious Intercollegiate Marketing Competition (IMC). Erin Spiller, Amanda Ovendone and Sean Krause were up against seven other groups at the marketing-focused business case competition. And the trio was the top Canadian finisher — beating out UBC, Simon Fraser University and the University of Alberta — placing just behind a pair of American teams. The competition is in its eighth year and features competitors across western Canada and the western United States. It requires third and fourth year business students to demonstrate their creativity and problem-solving skills while creating a marketing plan for a real world client. The students were challenged to design a marketing campaign which would attract younger consumers to a credit union. The

Tourney a huge success GARY AHUJA Times Sports

John GORDON/Langley Times

Above: Micky Meh and Baw Muhtoo (left) challenge for the ball during the Htoo Htoo Friendly Sepak Takraw Tournament of Champions on Saturday at Trinity Western University. The first annual event was played in honour of Htoo K’Bru Haw, the younger sister of K’Paw Doh (above right), who passed away last month. See video at www.langleytimes.com.

After a successful inaugural tournament, next year’s edition of the Htoo Htoo Sepak Takraw Tournament of Champions should be even bigger and better. “We just wanted people to come out and see the sport,” said Margaret Kunst, the operations director for the PuCKS (Promoting Community through Kids in Sport) program, which put on the tournament, along with help from the men’s and women’s soccer teams at Trinity Western University. Takraw, or cane ball, is a combination of volleyball and soccer and is very popular with the Karen community in Langley. The tournament was on honour of a little girl, Htoo K’Bru Paw, who passed away last month. Ten teams and 45 players were at Trinity Western University on Saturday for the friendly tournament.The teams were from Langley, Surrey and Vancouver,

but Kunst said next year’s event will be bigger, with invitations extended to the Karen communities in Regina, Calgary and Edmonton. Saturday’s tournament was also made possible thanks to a $1,000 donation from a man who lived in the same Douglas Park apartment building as many of the Karen community. Back in December, the man’s key snapped off in the door the building, and some of the Karen youth, helped the man get inside.They would not accept the $20

he offered them, so the man went to St. Joseph’s Church, which has helped the Karen community, and gave $1,000. “He wanted it used towards something for these youth that they could benefit from,” Kunst said.“This man was not a rich man and he wanted to remain anonymous, but was determined the kids would be thanked in this way.” The church got in touch with Kunst and the funds were used to help put on the event.

Association hopes free fastball the answer Langley Fastball offering free registration for nine and 10-year-olds in effort to boost numbers GARY AHUJA Times Sports

The Langley Fastball Association is hoping some short-term pain will lead to longterm gain. Faced with declining enrolment in the mite division (ages 9 and 10) for the upcoming season, the local organization is offering free registration for that age group.

They have done this in the past as well. “If we can get them into mite, we can usually have them for a good three, four years,” said Daphne Polancic, the LFA’s uniform manager. Polancic’s family is an example of how free registration can create new players. “It was one of those things where it was free, so why not get the kids to try baseball,” she explained. “It was free, I took advantage, and they loved it.” Both her son and daughter are still involved in the sport. Her daughter, now 14, is in her fifth year with Langley Fastball, while Polancic’s 12-year-old son is still involved in the sport, but has switched associations to North Langley Diamond Sports. And that is the overall goal of the free

registration, to get kids involved and hopefully keep them there. “Mite is ultimately our feeder age group into the rest of the divisions,” Polancic said Most years, there are about 80 kids registered at the mite level, but so far, with the season just weeks away, only 24 are registered. Those already enrolled with receive a refund, so the association is losing $2,400 from their operating budget. Ken Maher, the president of the Langley Fastball Association, said their numbers are down substantially from 10 years ago. “It is a straight line down in the last 10 years,” Maher said. There used to be 1,200 registered players, but that was down to 350 last season, he said.

And the fewer kids that give the sport a shot at this stage, the more troublesome the future of the game. “We are hoping to gain interest in the game,” Maher said. As a small business owner in Fort Langley, Polancic knows that the economy is still recovering. “I can understand the economics at this point so I can see why parents might not be registering their kids,” she said. “This is kind of a double-edged sword: it is a public offering but ultimately we do need the registrants for the future.” Polancic is sure parents and kids will be happy if they give the sport a chance. “Ultimately it is a great way to get outside and get some fresh air,” she said.“(And) we hope they enjoy it for a lifetime.”

Tourney raises $16K in Owens’ honour Five hundred hockey players between the ages of five and eight strapped on their skates this past week in honour of a little boy who loved hockey. The players took part in the 11th annual Jordan Owens Memorial Hockey Tournament

at the Walnut Grove Sportsplex from March 19-22. Owens was just eight years old when he passed away after a battle with cancer in 1999. Every March, the Langley Minor Hockey Association has held a tournament in honour

of Jordan, who was an avid hockey player. This year’s event raised approximately $16,000 and the 11-year total has surpassed $86,000. The money raised through the tournament goes towards the B.C. Children’s Hospital.

Jays’ Lawrie Vegas-bound Brett Lawrie’s baseball regular season will likely begin in Las Vegas at the AAA level. The 21-year-old from Langley, who was acquired by the Toronto Blue Jays from the Milwaukee Brewers organization in the off-season, had a solid spring training with the Jays — he hit .282 (11-for-39) with two home runs and six RBIs in 17 Grapefruit League games — but on Wednesday the team sent him to their minor league camp. “The fact is, we’ve got an exciting young player in our system,” Jays manager John Farrell said on the team’s website. “When he’s ready to come to the big leagues and be in the lineup every day, we feel like we’re going to have a player for a long, long time that’s going to be a productive one.” Lawrie is a Brookswood Secondary graduate and he played in the Langley Blaze system. He was a first round pick of the Brewers in the 2008 MLB Draft, and as the 16th overall pick, he is the highest-ever Canadian positional player selected. Last year at the AA level, he hit .285 with eight home runs and 63 RBIs. UUUUU With a strong Langley contingent,Team West won the first annual Fraser Valley Conference Midget C Scholarship Tournament. The tournament, played last week, saw all-star teams from the West (Surrey and Langley), East and North, made up of those 17-year-olds in their final season of midget hockey. Langley Minor Hockey Association was represented by goalie Shane Carey, Gerrad Freill and Jonathan Doerksen on defence, and Brendan Mykle-Winkler, David Doerksen, Ryan MacDonald and Joel McGuire up front. Aldergrove’s Gerad Maxwell was also in goal. Team West defeated Team East 4-3 in the championship final.

UUUUU The Fraser Valley Volleyball Club’s U14 boys’ team is showing they will be a force to be reckoned with come provincial tournament time next month. The group of 13-year-olds was competing at Volleyball VC’s U15 Supervolley tournament in Burnaby. And the team overcame a slow start — they dropped their first two matches — before reeling off three straight wins to make the championship final. Unfortunately, they came up short, losing to Coquitlam’s Focus Boom 2-1 (25-22,22-25,15-8). Langley’s Steven Hsu was a force on defence with 58 digs, while adding 27 kills for the offence.
