Training day Central Fraser Valley Search and Rescue honed their skills at Langley Regional Airport MIRANDA GATHERCOLE Times Reporter
To exit a helicopter hovering three feet above the ground, far more is involved than simply jumping out. It is important to climb out slowly and in a stable manner so that the helicopter is not thrown off balance. These hover exit training skills were taught to 27 members of Central Fraser Valley Search and Rescue on Saturday afternoon, during a training session at Langley Regional Airport. After spending two hours in a classroom learning important techniques, the members headed out to the tarmac to test their skills on a Bell 407— a helicopter commonly used for search and rescue missions. Starting at a hover two to three feet off the ground, the trainees
practised climbing in and out of the powerful chopper as strong winds from its rotor beat down against them.They then repeated the exercise at slightly higher heights. “It’s imitating some realistic situations where we may need to be dropped into the mountains, and it’s not always a nice clear landing.You have to get in and then get out, and that’s why we do this training,” said Lee Holeczek, search manager for Central Fraser Valley Search and Rescue. This is one of many weekly training sessions offered by Central Fraser Valley Search and Rescue, who regularly train in Langley on Tuesday nights. Recruits are required to have a Level 1 first aid course, be 19 years of age or older and “have willingness to take part,” Holeczek said. They then go through numerous training sessions to become full members.

Members of the Central Fraser Valley Search and Rescue learned how to enter and exit a hovering helicopter at the Langley Regional Airport on Saturday as part of a training exercise. Holeczek, who has been a member of search and rescue for 13 years, says his job is “very rewarding.” “I just enjoy being able to get out
there and help people when they need it,” he said. “There’s lots of different memories that stick out in my mind when we help find the people or
find the injured person. It’s when people come back afterwards and say thank you to the team that you realize how much your part helped them in their time of need.”
Accused ‘could barely take care of himself’ Former vet on trial for causing an animal to be in distress and failing to provide ‘necessaries’ MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter
Poor health is not a defence to allow six horses to become emaciated and to use one of them to try and pull a car out of a ditch, said the Crown prosecutor in the trial against a former Langley veterinarian. “In many cruelty cases there is a common theme,” said Crown counsel Liane O’Grady in her final submissions to the court. “The owners of animals are often in distress themselves.

Township backs Wall farm subdivision on ALR land NATASHA JONES Times Reporter
The farm that David Davis and his family have worked and lived on for more than a century lies only 200 feet or so from the farmland proposed for a 67-home subdivision, which would include an additional 18 coach houses. “The soil is as good as the soil on my farm,” the Township councillor said, as he argued against a rezoning application filed by Wall Financial. Davis’ arguments and those of Councillor Michelle Sparrow, who is also new on council, failed to convince the majority of council that 13.5 acres of the Wall property at 22415 - 72 Ave. should remain farmland. The rezoning bylaw passed third reading in a 6-3 vote on Monday. “Just because it has a swamp doesn’t make it unfarmable,” Davis said, adding that the Wall application “sets a real precedent for future applications (to subdivide farmland). We don’t want to give the impression that money talks, and we should be careful.” Residents who oppose the plan applauded when Davis said that there is no net benefit to agriculture, and when he noted that the mandate of the Agricultural Land Commission, which approved the subdivision on agricultural land, is to protect farmland. With no hills, swamps or creek running through it, the land “is as near as perfect” as agricultural land can be, he said. “Put the subdivision where subdivision should go,” Davis said. “This is not the type of growth I would like to see in the area,” Sparrow said, predicting that “we will see more speculators than farmers moving into the district.” The housing development is crucial to nearby Trinity Western University’s goal of establishing a ‘university district.’ The objective of this, according to a Township staff report, “is to promote long term prosperity of the university with diverse uses with strong links between the academic and [to] support uses for the primary benefit of the university.” However, Sparrow and Davis said they had no clear definition of a university district. Councillor Kim Richter voted with Sparrow and Davis to oppose the Wall Financial application. “I’ve no idea why this is being piggybacked onto the university district,” she said. “This is strip zoning.”
Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times
Horses relax on property near Trinity Western University, at Glover Road and Labonte Avenue. A portion of three properties owned by the university in that area is being rezoned to allow for expansion of the university campus. A separate but related rezoning will allow a 67-home subdivision within the ALR. Mayor Jack Froese called the application “a unique opportunity for the Township.” He added that without an amendment, proposed by Councillor Charlie Fox, that will prevent further subdivision on the balance of the Wall Farm’s 87.5 acres, he would not support the subdivision. The Township will be given another 52 acres for conservation as part of the rezoning. “I would like to see more active farming in the area but that would be up to the owner,” Councillor Steve Ferguson remarked, and Councillor Bob Long commented that positive aspects outnumber the negative ones. There are two other components that involve Trinity Western University’s expansion plan and they, too, passed the third reading hurdle, with only Davis and Sparrow opposed. Trinity and the Township have applied for rezoning and an amendment to the Rural Plan for 7645 and 7679 Glover Rd., and 22423 Labonte Cres. In these three properties, 23.4 acres will be used by Trinity to develop a university district; another 48 acres will remain in the ALR. The rezoning and amendment will allow
Trinity to expand its campus for “learning, recreational, cultural, employment and housing opportunities.” Housing, a food store and coffee shop geared to the university community are also planned. Councillor Bev Dornan called these proposals “a great economic generator for our community,” while Richter called the university district “very forward thinking and progressive for Langley. I think it could leave a very strong legacy for the future.” Davis said there had been a lot of “fluffy words and good intentions” but still no explanation of what constitutes a university district. Before the bylaw for Wall Financial comes to council for final reading, several conditions must be met. On Monday, council agreed to add two more: that there be no further subdivision on the remainder of the Wall property (currently an equestrian farm) and that the proponents work with the Township and the Ministry of Highways to improve the junction of Highway 10 and 72 Avenue, and the intersection of 232 Street and 72 Avenue, immediately south of the Highway 1 interchange.
A team of 11 officers from Langley RCMP’s traffic section and the Langleybased Fraser Valley Integrated Road Safety Unit set up a series of check stops throughout Langley on Friday, Feb. 10. Using plainclothes spotters and unmarked police cars, the officers’ net snared dozens of motorists who violated basic rules of the road. Police issued 200 tickets and 30 written warnings for a number of infractions, the majority of them for failing to wear a seat belt. Of the 200 motorists ticketed, 85 were not wearing their seat belts; 51 tickets were issued to motorists who were using their cellphones while driving. Police were shocked at the number of violators they pulled over. “Shockingly, motorists continue to blatantly disobey a more than three decade- old law that is proven to save lives and minimize injuries as a result of collisions,” said Cpl. Holly Marks, who speaks for Langley RCMP. “It’s simple. Make it part of your routine each and every time you enter your vehicle: Keys in the ignition, start vehicle, seat belt. Check your passengers. The vehicle must not move until everyone is buckled in. In years past, approximately one-third of all fatalities were the result of seat belt non-compliance.” Driving while distracted by cellphones contributes to 45 per cent of vehicle crashes in the Lower Mainland every year, said Marks. Noting that most cellphone contracts include voicemail, Marks said that “this is a service you already pay for, so why not get your money’s worth. If you are driving, let it go to voicemail.” Ignoring the law could result in a serious collision, she said, adding that drivers caught breaking the law by using a cellphone or texting as they drive face a $167 fine. Drivers caught texting or emailing, even when they have stopped at a traffic light or stop sign, may receive three penalty points in addition to the fine. Marks said that the law allows drivers to use a Bluetooth device as long as it is voice activated or requires only one touch to initiate, accept or end a call. Learner drivers are not allowed to use this device, Marks added.

Council gets testy over taxes Debate arises over whether to offer taxpayers floating ideas or concrete options NATASHA JONES Times Reporter
Are Township property owners prepared to pay into a rainy day fund for the upkeep of roads, or should the Township fight a little harder for a bigger slice of federal tax dollars for that purpose? Are ratepayers willing to pay for a study on a fine arts theatre, even though the City of Langley has floated the idea and the Rotary Club of Langley is raising money for one? Are Township taxpayers content to devote more tax dollar to health care, which is a provincial responsibility, even if those dollars go to a seniors’ facility in the City? And are residents of the Township, the
horse capital of B.C., willing to shell out for an agricultural/equestrian facility? These issues were pivotal in a lengthy, and sometimes testy, discussion at the council table on Monday afternoon, when council members argued about floating ideas versus offering taxpayers concrete options. Floating ideas to a public open house next week gives the impression that council is seriously considering them, said Councillor Bob Long. He said that council needs to separate what it intends to do from issues that are simply ideas. Long and Councillor Kim Richter sought to remove from the budget a 0.5 per cent increase in taxes to generate money for a road paving reserve, the cost of a study on a fine arts theatre, and an
equestrian facility. Their motion failed, as did Richter’s attempt to remove a grant for the Langley Care Society for Langley Lodge, a Langley City facility for the aged and infirm. Long said later that what council intends to do, and what it floats as an idea, should be treated differently. A problem, he and Richter noted, is the scant interest the public shows in the budget. On average, only 15 to 30 people attend the public open houses. Long said he would like staff to come up with ideas that encourage public participation. Township taxpayers will face a property tax increase of 3.2 per cent, including 0.5 per cent for each of the following, if approved by council: • Infrastructure reserve fund for paving, but not new construction; • to boost police and fire services; • a capital works reserve fund. The budget will increase residential
property taxes by 3.2 per cent, unless a majority of council votes to trim its must-do list. Among other items that will be presented for the public’s consideration are: • $5 million to replace the bridge over the Nicomekl River on 56 Avenue, near Christian Life Assembly; • $330,000 to hire four firefighters in 2012, and four next year, as the Township continues to man firehalls around the clock; • $33,000 for the Langley Care Society’s Langley Lodge; • $80,000 for a small park and public art installation at the site of the original Milner Church, and • $500,000 over two years for a South Langley regional riding trail. The open houses will be held on Monday, Feb. 27 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., and on Tuesday, Feb. 28 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Both open houses will be held on the fourth floor of the Township Hall, in the foyer outside the council chambers.

No cruelty, neglect, defence argues from PAGE 1
On Nov. 12, the animal officer wrote that a vet needed to be called immediately for the ailing horses. Marohn testified that he never looked at the door hangers, nor responded to them. There was no need for a vet. “I was a vet,” he testified. The SPCA never did come to seize the horses until after his arrest. O’Grady questioned why Marohn never found ways to get rid of the horses, knowing he had no way to care for them. Ironically, all six horses were “rescued” by Marohn’s daughter, with permission from her dad. “He made judgements Langley Times file photo by his heart not by his Mark Marohn is on trial for causing an animind.

A stubborn premier
Dix edges out Clark
remier Christy Clark has lost thousands of votes south of the Fraser, by stating on Monday that there will be no revisiting of the BC Liberals’ policy on bridge tolling. Clark was unequivocal that the new Port Mann Bridge will be tolled (at about $3 per trip) when it opens, but there will be no other tolls on any Lower Mainland bridges or tunnels. She is reinforcing the policy, which means that Langley and Surrey residents have the only two toll bridges in B.C. as their major options, if travelling north of the Fraser River. Of course, there are the free options of the 75-year-old Pattullo Bridge, the Alex Fraser Bridge or the Massey Tunnel. Distance suggests that few Langley residents will choose those options when crossing the river. Many mayors have suggested that a region-wide tolling policy, of perhaps $1 per crossing, could bring in extra revenue for TransLink and bring about fairness for all who use bridges and tunnels. No longer would drivers be punished, based on where they live. This is a sensible alternative and would still allow the province to recoup the funds it is using in building the new bridge and improving Highway 1 from Langley to Vancouver. But Clark can’t see that. Despite the fact that her government has brought in no less than 50 reviews of the Gordon Campbell government’s policies on a wide variety of subjects, she can’t see the wisdom of reversing the Campbell tolling policy. Nor can she understand why South Fraser residents see it as unfair that the new Sea-to-Sky Highway isn’t tolled, but the new Port Mann Bridge will be. Her South Fraser MLAs have been silent on this policy as well, which is surprising, as it may be a major factor in their electoral fortunes next year. Regular users of Highway 1 from as far east as Chilliwack will be affected by this inequitable policy, and the results in the pending Chilliwack-Hope byelection may prove to Clark that Fraser Valley voters don’t believe in being treated unfairly. Clark was seen as the potential saviour of the sliding BC Liberals when she became party leader last spring. Her reviews of many Campbell policies are designed to show that she wants to do things differently. Why is she being so stubborn on this policy? The premier needs to take a page from legendary B.C. Premier W.A.C. Bennett and take a “sober second look” at a policy that punishes people based on where they live. Such second looks allowed Bennett to stay in power for 20 years.

drian Dix, leader of the NDP, has passed Premier Christy Clark as the most popular choice for the top job in B.C., according to a poll released last week. The online survey of 800 B.C. adults found Dix was chosen “best premier” by 26 per cent of respondents, compared to Clark at 22 per cent. It’s the first time Dix has ranked first in that category in Angus Reid’s series of polls. On voting intention, the poll found 42 per cent decided or leaning to the NDP, up two per cent since the last poll in November. The Liberals were down three points to 28 per cent, the first time the party has fallen below 30 per cent since former premier Gordon Campbell resigned. The B.C. Conservatives collected 19 per cent of voter intentions, a one per cent jump, and the Green Party was up two points to 10 per cent. Regionally, 51 per cent of decided voters on Vancouver Island and 41 per cent in Metro Vancouver favoured the NDP. The B.C. Conservatives have reached the 20 per cent mark in both Metro Vancouver and the Interior. Even though Clark has been snatching up every former federal Conservative MP, strategist, and party hack she can find to work for her, one in four Liberal voters from the 2009 election are now supporting the B.C. Conservatives, the poll found. Margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 per cent. A series of issue questions rated the Liberals and NDP evenly. Angus Reid vicepresident Mario Canseco said the results show “Clark has lost her edge on issues like crime and the economy, which her predecessor used to dominate, even at the pinnacle of his unpopularity.” The government must soon call two byelections to replace departed B.C. Liberal MLAs Barry Penner and Iain Black. In the Chilliwack-Hope riding vacated by Penner, many pundits are now suggesting that the NDP can actually win the riding — one that has never elected an NDP MLA. The poll is the latest bad news for the BC Liberals. The next provincial election is just over a year away — unless Clark abandon the legislation mandating regularly scheduled elections, and uses up the full five-year mandate. —Prince George Free Press The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Administrators keep schools going Editor: As the teachers continue their work to rule campaign, it should be noted that the principals and vice-principals are the unsung heroes in keeping schools running with a minimum of disruption to the students. In many schools, principals and vice-principals also teach. They do this in addition to the management and leadership they provide to keep schools running effectively and ensuring student success. Since the commencement of the school year, these individuals have taken on many extra tasks as they continue to demonstrate that they are the ones who truly care about pupils and their welfare. If there has not been much noticeable disruption at your neighbourhood school,
it is because the administrators are doing all the supervision and were required to send out report cards. They have had to supervise government exams, or supervise and mark the FSAs — all duties of teachers. Meetings with parents concerned about their child’s progress but unable to get information from the teacher have taken additional time as administrators try to help these individuals. As teachers refuse to do extra duties, administrators have taken over coaching of teams as they know this is a very important part of school life for many students. Principals and vice-principals are exhausted as they try to keep their school functioning with some degree of normality.
With BCTF strike guidelines, teachers are not permitted to meet with administration so any collaboration as to what is best for learning to occur is nonexistent. Collegiality and cooperation within schools has suffered substantially. Parents need to know about their child’s progress. Students should have opportunities for a variety of extracurricular activities. Administrators should be able to show the educational leadership so necessary in schools but they currently are stretched beyond reason doing other duties. It is time for the impasse in negotiations between the BCTF and the government to end. Joy Ruffeski, Langley
Editor: On Thursday, Feb. 9, the education minister came to Surrey to announce that he is appointing a fact finder to see if there is room for a negotiated settlement. Otherwise, teachers will be legislated back as our present job action has disrupted learning or something to that effect. Firstly, teachers are teaching, kids are learning and parents are being reported to. “Disrupt” means doing absolutely nothing extracurricular or a full out strike, which is not what is happening right now. Secondly, what facts is he looking to find when they are out there on the table for all to see? According to Keith Baldrey on Voice of BC, his move is a tactic to pressure teachers or a heads-up to upcoming legislation. The minister told protesting Surrey teachers he was unwilling to move from net zero. So why bother with a fact finder? What else is left to negotiate? Why did so many other public workers get increases and will
get more as the new mandate comes into effect? We did not have chance to ask this, as the minister was already late for students after giving a press conference which teachers were not aware of or invited to. A bully takes something away and then says you can have this back if you give me this other thing and this other thing and when he gives back what he took, it is broken. If you protest, he threatens you. Bottom line, the victim loses either way. A mediator makes sure everyone meets halfway. Sadly, one has not been appointed. Finally, ads on the New Education Plan are running, using taxpayers’ money. More than $500 million will be spent on mandated professional development, on more special education assistants and not on teachers. I suspect that money will also be spent on million dollar software programs, com-
puters, and iPads that will “personalize” learning. This plan is without any input or choice from teachers. Again, when asked, the minister agreed there is money for his plan. So it seems the government wants to save money by taking away teacher rights, downsizing, and plucking further from our measly benefits. Will this improve education? How is this justified and why is there no money being put back to rectify what was illegally stripped from our contract in 2002, as the courts ordered? Does the minister think that in this climate, teachers will enthusiastically embrace anything new coming from the ministry? Teachers must be shown some respect with a negotiated settlement. Anything less is going to create an unhealthy climate, and nobody will be the winner. Neovi Patsicakis, Surrey
Teachers must be shown some respect
Back to the old ways Editor: I endorse Win Bromley’s comments (The Times, Feb. 9) about Councillor Steve Ferguson’s arrogant refusal to consider any rollback of council stipends.It appears the new council is going back to the pre-Green way of doing business. I noticed the first decision was to approve the overpass to nowhere. If Canadian Pacific Rail starts tankering oil to Roberts Bank, as appears likely,we will have many more delays. David Woolley, Langley The
Chance to vote for new leader Editor: Last May, more than 11,000 Langley voters (and 4.5 million Canadians) voted for Jack Layton and the NDP. Many were members of the federal NDP. On March 24, thousands of people from across Canada will choose the next leader of Canada’s Official Opposition, and possibly the next prime minister. The federal NDP leadership selection process allows one vote for every member. If you’re not yet a member but would like to participate in this historic event, you have until Feb. 18 to sign up. You
can do so at leadership2012.ndp.ca. Click on “Join the NDP” and an application form will appear. A membership costs just $10. We need a strong leader in Ottawa, someone who shares our interests and values, someone who will speak out on protecting our environment, our pension plans and health care. You can help make that happen, but don’t delay. Shane Dyson, Aldergrove
FIRST-TIME SUCCESS Editor: The very first LangleyAldergrove-Abbotsford Walk for Memories blew all expectations out of the water, and for this the volunteer organizers have so many good people to thank. The fundraiser for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. was one of 24 Walks for Memories around the province on Sunday, Jan. 29. Pouring rain, gusting winds and a miserable chill in Aldergrove didn’t deter more than 200 people from turning out at the Athletic Park, where donations gradually rose to an amazing $42,000 and change. (The final total may be slightly higher.) This achievement — the fourthhighest total, behind only walks in Vancouver, Kamloops and Surrey/ White Rock — shows what a caring community can do when inspired by a brave honoree, Brenda Reddick. At age 51, she has early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Brenda’s husband, Rick, is a Township assistant fire chief and firefighters rallied brilliantly to Brenda’s appeal. So also did some wonderful students and teachers from local schools, area businesses, families experiencing the ravages of dementia — and “ordinary” individuals who heard about the fundraiser and wanted to help. Alzheimer’s and other dementia already affect more than 70,000 individuals and families in B.C. and, with baby boomers entering their senior years, this toll, sadly, is likely to rise. As yet, there is no cure. Thanks to the contributions of hundreds of caring Fraser Valley residents, there is now more money to support victims of dementia. There is now more money for research into dementia prevention and cure. The dozens of students who volunteered so enthusiastically for this event may one day see a world without dementia. Thank you, on behalf of the 2012 local Walk for Memories volunteer committee (Amery Ai, Colin Buckoke, Bruce Farquhar, Marilyn Fischer, Sue Hull, Karen Long, Thanh Ma, Susan O’Neill, Rose Puszka, Rob Ruggles, Christina Strong, Brian Zeiner), and others who gave their time and energy to help create this event from scratch.

Richard Martin, co-founder of the Langley wildlife rehabilitation centre, passed away at the age of 69 Staff and volunteers at Critter Care are mourning the loss of one of their own. Richard Martin, co-founder of the Langley wildlife rehabilitation centre, passed away on Feb. 7 following a battle with cancer. He was 69. While Gail Martin has been the face and name of Critter Care, it was her husband Richard who has been behind the scenes, happily obliging countless hours of building, fixing and helping. “There wouldn’t be a Critter Care without Richard,” said Gail this week. They were married 46 years. Richard leaves behind two sons, Curtis and Lloyd and was a “Papa” to five grandchildren,
whom he adored. It was 28 years ago when Gail had a dream to create a centre to care for injured and orphaned animals native to B.C. This dream came true in 1993, largely because of Richard, she said. Richard was a man who loved his wife and supported her dream beyond words. So much so, he tolerated having his basement turned into a nursery for sick and injured animals. While most of us bring our work home with us on computers and with paperwork, Gail would bring her work home with her in the form of baby animals, like abandoned sea otters that need round-theclock feedings. Richard spent his evenings and weekends refurbishing a then-70-year-old
2011 Spirit of Diversity Award
Robertson Crescent is a fairly straight country road that runs from 240 Street to 264 Street. Running east-west, Robertson Crescent forms intersections at two busy north-south roads, namely 248 Street and 256 Street, both of which have the right of way; traffic on Robertson Crescent
is controlled with stop signs. On Monday, Langley Township council backed a motion from Councillor Bob Long which calls for a safety review of the intersections of Robertson Crescent and 248 and 256 Streets. Some motorists, another councillor remarked, stop on Robertson Crescent and, believing an intersection is controlled by four-way stops signs, proceed

The chair of B.C.’s Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) is questioning whether winery restaurants and other business ventures that seek to sprawl on agricultural land should be authorized farm uses. Richard Bullock said he’s examining whether the trend may erode the productivity of Lower Mainland farmland, which is already under attack on multiple fronts. “We want to find out how serious a problem it is,” he said.
“How far should we go in allowing these businesses to grow and morph into something far beyond what the original idea was?” Bullock raised the issue of farms building add-on facilities with little connection to their crops at a meeting of Metro Vancouver’s regional planning and agriculture committee last Friday. The ALC is to rule on whether Richmond’s Lulu Island Winery can add a 3,500 square foot restaurant on land in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR).

Metro directors also told Bullock they remain deeply concerned about the degradation of farmland through the illegal dumping of fill. continued, PAGE 11

RCMP seize cash, drugs A 19-year-old Langley man has a court date and Langley RCMP have $20,000 in cash and a host of drug-related paraphernalia after a Langley RCMP traffic officer pulled over a car in Langley City on Feb. 8. Cpl. Holly Marks, who speaks for the detachment, said that the officer smelled
marijuana as he drove in the downtown core a few minutes before 10 p.m. In the 19800 block of Fraser Highway, the officer pulled over a white Ford pickup truck with two occupants. The smell of pot was “overwhelming” when the driver opened the window of the vehicle, Marks said.
Both the teen, who was driving, and his passenger were arrested. A search of their vehicle yielded a satchel containing more than $20,000 in cash, a weigh scale, a bag containing various pills, and substances that appear to be drugs, as well as several cell phones, marijuana grinders and rolling papers.
The items were seized, but the Lower Mainland Police Dog Services could find nothing more when a more thorough search was carried out. The teen must appear in Surrey Provincial Court on May 8 to face a charge of possessing a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
Councillor: ‘Nine times out of 10 it’s a crock’ from PAGE 10
Delta Councillor Ian Paton said developers who need to dump unwanted soil from construction sites but balk at paying $800 to $1,000 a load at the Vancouver Landfill are instead finding farmers who let them dump it for as little as $200 a load. Farmland owners frequently claim they need to raise the level of their land because it’s too low to grow crops. “Nine times out of 10, it’s a crock,” Paton said.“All they want to do is bring in fill material and make themselves a purse full of money.” Steves said the owner of a large
property can make $1 into parking lots for million or more piling trucks. fill on it. “The port has told But the next farmer independent truckers who tries to plow the they have to find land often turns up somewhere else to park plastic, garbage and their trucks other than contaminated debris. port land,” he said.

Debate on smart growth A debate over smart growth will take place next Thursday (Feb. 23) at Langley Township council chambers, 20338 65 Avenue. With the Metro Vancouver region set to grow by another one million people over the next 20 years, and with most of that growth set to occur south of the Fraser River, there has been a call by many academics and urban planners to change the way communities are built. South Fraser OnTrax, which advocates for smart growth design principles such as making transit a priority and building neighbourhoods that provide a variety of housing options, is sponsoring the debate between two well-known speakers with different perspectives. Todd Litman of the Victoria Transport Policy Institute, whose research has been used by governments worldwide, will be debating Randal O’Toole, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute. He has taught environmental economics at Yale, UC Berkeley, and Utah State University on the future of land use and transportation planning. Litman is a strong proponent of smart growth principles and high-quality public transit while O’Toole has been an outspoken critic. “For many years we have talked about building more sustainable community and better transit,” says Nathan Pachal of OnTrax, “but many in our communities are not sold on the ideas that this is the way to go. This debate will allow both perspectives to be expressed and let people decide what future they want for our region.” OnTrax, with the support of a City of Langley grant, is hosting this debate from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 23. This free event is open to all members of the public. They will hear both sides of the debate and question Litman and O’Toole. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended. See southfraser.net or facebook.com/ events/317650071605846/ for more information, and email email@example.com to reserve a seat.

Tracie Ellerman found the 12-centimetre bronze disk next to some worn steel-toed boots in an old wooden chest in the cellar of her 100-year-old Fort Langley home. It showed an image of Lady Britannia with the British lion and two dolphins representing Britain’s sea power standing over a defeated eagle representing Germany. Around the outer edge of the medallion is a message: “He died for freedom and honour” and a name; James Brition Vacher. It was 1999, and Ellerman was in the middle of extensive renovations, so she put the disk to one side. “I didn’t really know what it was,” Ellerman says. “I thought it was kind of neat and hung on to it, and kind of forgot about it.”

It would be more than a decade before she would learn the origins of the disk, courtesy of Steve Cole, whose curiosity led him to conduct some online research. What he found out has led the couple to mount a determined search for the family of the man named on the disk. He was, it turns out, a soldier who fought and died during the First World War. James Brition Vacher was 18 years old when he signed up with the Canadian Over-Seas Expeditionary Force on August 30, 1915. The 5’6” brown-haired, blueeyed Vacher gave his place of birth as Carlyle, Saskatchewan, but he enlisted in Vernon, B.C. He gave his profession as “butter maker” and on the form where he was supposed to list his next-of-kin, he wrote down his grandmother “Mrs. Ham” and

found in Fort Langley three days before he would have turned 20. He was laid to rest in the Regina Trench Cemetery in France, which means he likely perished during the Battle of the Ancre Heights, when Canadian soldiers waged a backand-forth campaign to wrestle control of the trench away from the Germans. It was part of the Battle of the Somme, the Allied offensive against the Germans which resulted in more than one million casualties and has come to be known as one of the bloodiest military operations ever
recorded. Vacher is one of 564 Canadian soldiers laid to rest in the cemetery that straddles the location of the infamous trench. The medallion with his name is called a Dead Man’s Penny or a Blood Penny and was cast in bronze gunmetal. Presented to the next-of-kin of the men and women who died during the First World War, it deliberately omits the rank of the slain soldier to show equality in their sacrifice. It is usually accompanied by a scroll and a message from King George V, that said
“I join with my grateful people in sending you this memorial of a brave life given for others in the Great War.” Just over 1.1 million were produced after the war. Ellerman and Cole want to return the penny to the surviving relatives of the late Vacher, but their search has hit a wall. They know that Vacher’s name is on the Abbotsford Cenotaph, but they have been unable to determine if he has any family in the area. Ellerman says the fact Vacher listed his grandmother as next-
of-kin may mean that he had no other living relatives, but she and Cole are hoping that isn’t the case. “I would love to think that there’s someone out there,” Ellerman says. “If it belonged to someone in my family, I would love to get it back,” Cole says. If you have any information that would help Ellerman and Cole reunite the medallion with the Vacher family, email tracie_e@telus. net. See video at www. langleytimes.com.

Toastmasters help speakers gain poise DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter
Wendy LeRoux hasn’t tried the often-suggested trick of imagining her audience is naked to overcome anxiety about public speaking. “Never, never, never,” says LeRoux, president of the Langley Toastmasters club. “Why would you want to do that? It would only make me more nervous.” As customer service manager for Botanus, a Langley-based mail-order plan and gardening supply company, LeRoux had been an occasional and reluctant public speaker. “That sickening, wrenching feeling in the stomach,” is how she describes her experience of doing client presentations to audiences as large as 300 people. “I did everything I had to do, but I didn’t enjoy it,” she says. “I was scared to death.” LeRoux did try one suggested trick of looking over the heads of the crowd to the back of the room, something that she doesn’t recommend now. “They (your audience) know you’re not engaged.” So she went to Toastmasters, the non-profit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills. Toastmasters was started in 1924 by Ralph Smedley a director of education for a Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) who observed that many of the young men needed “training in the art of public speaking and in presiding over meetings” He decided the training format would be similar to a social club and chose the word “toastmaster” because it referred to a person who proposed the toasts and introduced the speakers at a banquet. Members are of all ages and backgrounds, with an interest in improving their speaking skills in common. There are more than 5,000 members in 267 B.C. clubs.

Big change in power policy
remier Christy Clark’s recent fanfare about developing a natural gas export industry in northern B.C. included a major change in electricity policy. Last year Clark’s government forced BC Hydro to trim its operations and keep its next two annual rate increases below four per cent. Part of the savings will come from redefining former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate strategy, which required BC Hydro to be self-sufficient in even low-water years, with no net electricity imports. The target is now self-sufficiency in average-water years, limiting expansion of independent power projects. It also means B.C. will import more gas-fired electricity in the coming years, and burn some of its own abundant gas to generate new power up north. North America finds itself floating on a sea of shale gas. Campbell’s plan entailed using B.C.’s big dams to stabilize and store power from new intermittent sources of hydro and wind, building the Site C dam on the Peace River and exporting clean energy at a premium in a carbon-priced North American market. Both the carbon market and the export market have evaporated. While B.C. was developing run-of-river to sell to California, the U.S. west coast built new capacity, much of it gas fired, after an electricity crisis that caused brownouts more than a decade ago.

From nervousness to enjoying speaking from PAGE 19
LeRoux recalls her first Toastmasters speech, a so-called “icebreaker” where the novice is expected to spend about five minutes talking about themselves. “My heart was racing,” she remembers. “I was um-ing and ah-ing all over the place.” Now, she says she actually enjoys public speaking. Instead of avoiding eye contact, she likes to look for one person in an audience who doesn’t seem interested and try to connect with them, without ignoring the other listeners. The skills she has acquired have helped her work with clients on the phone and even everyday conversation, she says. “It’s resonated through my whole life.” LeRoux is now teaching a course through Langley Continuing Education, called “Successful Selling, Successful Life” that combines her Toastmaster skills and her years of experience in sales and customer service. February of this year was declared “Toastmasters Month” in B.C. by the Lieutenant Governor. For more information about the Langley club and the international organization, visit http://langley.toastmastersclubs.org/

Wendy LeRoux is president of Langley Toastmasters.
How Does It Work? (From Toastmasters website) A Toastmasters meeting is a learnby-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. A typical group has 20 to 40 members who meet weekly, biweekly or monthly. A typical meeting lasts 60–90 minutes.

Many things to think about when buying a home
Simpson offers tips for new home buyers So you want to buy a home, you have a nice down payment saved up and you’re rearing to go. But are you ready? The number-one thing you need to do, according to Peter Simpson, President and CEO of the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association, is get pre-approved for a mortgage. He says this step will virtually guarantee your price point, and it’ll make sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew in terms of monthly payments. “When the offer goes in, you’ve already done the work,” he says. “It saves time and heartache: you won’t get disappointed by missing out on a house that you love.” Do you really need that four-bedroom townhome? Simpson says most couples just starting may be better off with a two-
bedroom, two-bathroom condo, which will allow for an addition to the family without destroying your budget. Above all, Simpson says home buyers need to separate their needs from their wants before hitting the market. Finally, you’re going to want to know what the neighbourhood is like. Simpson says buyers need to do some research into transit, schools and future development plans. Will that green space be turned into a high-rise or more townhomes? Commuters will want to know how long it takes to get to work, so the best way to find out is to give it a shot. Make sure you do it during rush hour. “People say ‘It’s not that far,’” Simpson says. “But people are typically looking at a house on a Sunday afternoon.”
‘Your friendly neighbourhood builder’
Kanaka Creek the first development from Bluetree Homes by Kerry Vital
Buying a new home can be stressful, but working with a builder with a great reputation and decades of background in creating new communities will go a long way to giving you peace of mind and a fantastic buying experience. It was with that thought in mind that ParkLane Homes introduces their newest development company, Bluetree Homes. Owned by ParkLane’s current Chief Operating Officer Ben Taddei, Bluetree is priding itself on its friendly approach to home building. As a member of the Greater Vancouver Homebuilders’ Association and the Canadian Homebuilders’ Association, the entire company is devoted to setting the bar high with the quality of their construction and innovation in home and community design. “Bluetree is building on ParkLane Homes’ stellar 30-year reputation to focus on high-quality homes of all types – apartments, townhomes and single-family homes – throughout Metro Vancouver,” says Yosh Kasahara, general manager of sales and marketing at Bluetree and ParkLane. “ParkLane will continue to do what it does best: deliver large master-planned communities like the 130-acre River District located in southeast Vancouver.”
As a Bluetree homeowner, you can count on dependable customer service and lasting quality in your home,” says general manager of sales and marketing Yosh Kasahara.
Bluetree is currently developing communities in five neighbourhoods throughout the Lower Mainland, including Maple Ridge, Surrey, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Vancouver. “Bluetree looks for established neighbourhoods which are close to existing amenities like schools, shopping, parks and transit,” Kasahara says. “This combination of location and home features offer its residents a great quality of life and enduring
value through smart design, sound construction and customer service.” Its first community, “Bluetree Homes at Kanaka Creek” in Maple Ridge, is selling now. The 51 three- and four-bedroom townhomes are available in three different floorplans, ranging from 1,350 to 2,180 square feet. One amazing feature of Kanaka Creek is the Maple Ridge location. continued on page 3
ParkLane has built more than 6,000 homes in over 100 communities across Metro Vancouver, and has been recognized with over 300 provincial and national awards for building excellence. In 2010, they were awarded the Grand SAM Award by the CHBA, and were nominated again in 2011 (the awards will be given out next month.) The Grand SAM recognizes the top builder in Canada for excellence in both building and marketing new homes.
Bluetree Homes has broken into the market with its first townhome development, Bluetree Homes at Kanaka Creek. Featuring beautiful views of the creek and surrounding parkland, Bluetree is also pleased to offer double-basin undermount sinks, left, and an open-plan layout, top.

…off the front: “Bluetree is building on ParkLane Homes’ stellar 30-year reputation to focus on high-quality homes of all types ... throughout Metro Vancouver.” Yosh Kasahara. continued from page 1
Surrounded by the namesake creek and parkland, the great outdoors is literally just outside your front door. A children’s playground is right in the neighbourhood, so if your little ones need to let off some steam, you’re already in the perfect spot. Even the homes themselves have outdoor options, with private decks and patios for entertaining or a quiet evening in. “Due to its hillside location, many of the homes offer panoramic views of parkland, Kanaka Creek, and even Mount Baker,” Kasahara says. Those stunning views are just one piece in the home puzzle. The interiors are built in an open-plan layout, with nine-foot ceilings on the first floor and large kitchen spaces. Bluetree has included convenient workspaces, islands, breakfast bars and pantries, so you have several options for meals, entertaining or food preparation. The engineered stone countertops with a hand-set tile backsplash are perfectly complemented by the shakerstyle cabinets with their brushed nickel hardware. The double basin stainless-steel sink is a masterstroke of convenience, while the stainless-steel appliances lend the true air of a gourmet kitchen to this elegant space. When you’re in need of a little peace and quiet, the master ensuites include separate soaker tubs in some homes, and “his and hers” vanities so you can both get ready in the morning without elbowing your partner for mirror space. “The homes at Kanaka Creek have been designed by our award-winning team with ease and functionality in mind,” says Kashara. “Open floorplans make the main floor level feel spacious and connect living and dining rooms with large decks for seamless indooroutdoor living.” The location was chosen because of its proximity to every amenity a family could ever want, Kasahara says. There are several excellent schools nearby, as well as shopping, parks, restaurants and the West Coast Express commuter rail line. “Kanaka Creek is perfect for young families, first-time buyers and area locals looking to move into a home that better fits their needs,” he says. The grand opening of Kanaka Creek will take place on Saturday, Feb. 25, but some homes have already been snapped up. “Even before we officially launched for sales, visitors to our two decorated show homes have been wowed by the contemporary interior design details and high-quality finishes,” Kasahara says, adding “Buyers have told us that this community ‘sets the bar for new townhomes in Maple Ridge.’”
Future Bluetree communities will include Bishop Creek in Surrey, Mackin Park in Coquitlam, Citadel Heights in Port Coquitlam and Main Street in Vancouver. Integrity is big to the people at Bluetree, and research has shown that the reputation of a homebuilder is an important factor in the home-buying decision. This is particularly true with new homes because they are often sold before they are built, and potential buyers must rely on show homes, features lists and floorplans to make their decision. “As a Bluetree homeowner, you can count on dependable customer service and lasting quality in your home,” says Kasahara. ParkLane is one of Greater Vancouver’s most respected builders, and is responsible for communities such as Heritage Woods in Port Moody and Bedford Landing in Fort Langley. Bluetree will continue this tradition with its own selection of neighbourhoods. “Bluetree’s slogan is ‘your friendly neighbourhood builder,’” says Kasahara. “This reflects our commitment to making the home-buying process easy and enjoyable; from the minute you walk into the Bluetree Store, it’s our goal to make the process relaxed and stress-free.” Homes at Kanaka Creek start at $299,900. For more information about Bluetree Homes and Kanaka Creek, check out www. bluetreehomes.ca or visit the Bluetree Store at 11176 Gilker Hill Road in Maple Ridge.
Expansive ensuite bathrooms, left, and dining areas with beautiful views, above, are just some of the stunning features at Bluetree Homes at Kanaka Creek. Convenient kitchen islands perfect for pulling up a stool, below, are an integral piece of your gourmet kitchen.
Potential buyers who have walked through the two fully furnished showhomes at Kanaka Creek have commented on the high-quality finishes and elegant interior design details, general manager of sales and marketing for Bluetree and ParkLane Yosh Kasahara says. It’s hard not to immediately fall in love with the three- and four-bedroom townhomes.

CAR CARE & REPAIR Mopar turns 75 this year The Mopar brand will celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2012. Starting as the name of a single product (anti-freeze) the Mopar brand evolved over 75 years. The Mopar brand was officially trademarked in 1937 at a meeting of the Chrysler Parts Corporation’s Activities Council in Highland Park, Mich. The committee mulled over a list of names for Chrysler’s anti-freeze product and came up with MoPar, a contraction of the words motor and parts. Mopar became a brand name for most Chrysler Corporation parts, and gradually evolved into the name of the parts business itself. The moniker was officially attached to a Chrysler parts organization in the late 1960s, when Chrysler created an aftermarket business unit named the Mopar Division.

Trolley one step closer to becoming reality New service direct result of reality TV show Million Dollar Neighbourhood NATASHA JONES Times Reporter
If Aldergrove residents ever felt that they were the poor cousin to other urban areas of Langley Township, especially where public transportation is concerned, they can prepare to banish those feelings. The town is about to embark on a unique way of transporting workers, shoppers and tourists: a trolley bus. For years, residents have asked TransLink to improve on the scant service the town of approximately 8,000 people receives.Their chorus of complaints, echoed by council, have proved futile. Now, however, the Aldergrove Trolley Association is one step closer to putting a trolley on the road, serving people who work at Gloucester Estates and the Greater Vancouver Zoo, and providing transportation for those who live as far south as 0 Avenue, including the 450 residents of Pioneer Park. The service is the direct result of the reality TV show Million Dollar Neighbourhood which challenged
residents to make changes to improve their neighbourhoods. “It’s obvious that the Million Dollar Neighbourhood has brought the community together in the most dynamic way,” Councillor Charlie Fox commented on Feb. 6. The trolley system has been modeled on that used in Langford on Vancouver Island, said Dave Miller who represents the ATA. “The Langford Trolley system is extremely successful and tremendously popular in that community,” he said, adding that gas taxes provide most of the funding. Langford Mayor Stew Young has been “wonderfully supportive” and even paid for a trolley from his town to have a trial run in Aldergrove, Miller said. On that day, the community response was “outstanding.” Miller said that while the intention is to provide a free service, passengers will be asked for a donation. Operating costs and other funding will come from advertising, grants and contributions from local businesses.

Local transit boosters Bruce Heslop (from left), Annette McArthur, Dave Miller and Jody Henderson, were on hand in November when a trolley bus from Langford came to Aldergrove. The Aldergrove Trolley Association is one step closer to putting a trolley on the road. This is how it is done in Langford, Miller noted, adding that gas taxes provide most of that town’s funding. There will be two routes which currently have little or no TransLink services: * Route 1 would start at Extra
Foods on 272 Street, proceed along 32 Avenue to 264 Street, over the freeway and into Gloucester Estates on 56 Avenue.The route would run four times from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.,with a round trip expected to last 45 minutes.
* Route 2 would start at Extra Foods, proceed south on 272 Street to Pioneer Park, through the park onto Zero Avenue to 248 Street, north on 248 Street to Otter Co-Op and eastward on Fraser Highway to 276 Street, stopping at Save On Foods, downtown Aldergrove and Safeway. From Safeway the trolley would go along 276 Street to 32 Avenue and back to Extra Foods. Service would run five times daily from 9:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. with a round trip of 60 minutes. Also planned are two trips running exclusively to the zoo and Highway 1. Miller said that the association requires approval from TransLink and to date discussions have been “excellent.” Telling council that the ATA would like the trolley on the road by the summer, Miller said that Langford’s foray into trolley bus transport was so successful that within months another trolley was in service. Council agreed to consider Miller’s request for $2,500 which will pay to set up a business plan, and the association as the non-profit corporation running the business.

Kwantlen students finish tops Business students off to Singapore in April
AWARD WINNING DESIGNS
A team of university business students is off to Singapore in April. Steven Vu, Larisa Gorodetsky and Anny Chen, who are part of the Kwantlen Polytechnic University school of business, earned that right after placing first at the 2012 CaseIT Undergraduate Business Case Competition. Nearly 80 university teams entered the preliminary competition with the top 16 — featuring teams from Indiana University, UBC, Queen’s, Carnegie Mellon and National University of Singapore — competing earlier this month in Vancouver. CaseIT is an annual international undergraduate business case competition focused on Management Information Systems (MIS) and designed to find the best and brightest in strategic
case analysis. Students from various backgrounds in information technology and business showcase their skills in teamwork, problem solving, and critical thinking to a panel of industry professionals. This year’s competition dealt with security, its role in business success, and the obligations to protect a company’s stakeholders, bottom line and future. The panel of judges included representatives from companies such as Coast Capital Savings, CGI, Orbis Financial Planning, SAP, and CIOVAN. “Identifying information is hidden, so the judges don’t know where you’re from— they simply choose the team that’s best,’” Vu said. “Once you level the playing field like that, it’s about skill and what you know.” School of business faculty and team coach Robert Wood echoed that sentiment, saying, “The team truly turned in a first-class performance.” According to School of Business Dean Dr. Arthur Coren, “Case competitions
enrich the undergraduate experience. They blend theory with practice and give students an opportunity to apply their learning. It’s one of the many ways we develop students who are ready to work and ready to lead.” “The competition makes it all very real,” said team member Larisa Gorodetsky said, “Working under pressure really makes you think and perform.” This year’s CaseIT competition was the largest yet, with 80 teams representing universities from all over the world, including Canada, the United States, Germany, Australia, Lebanon, Indonesia and others. In the words of B.C. Premier Christy Clark, the competition “is a great way for the brightest minds to apply their skills, expand their horizons and network, as they prepare for their future roles in our society.” The next stop for the awardwinning team will be the APEX Business-IT Global Case Challenge in Singapore.

Chamber wants mobility
Alert We will warranty Langley Speedy and most competitor automotive repair shops work.
For people who run landscaping companies, mobile mechanics and janitorial services, construction and related businesses, having to secure a business licence in each municipality where they work is not only financially onerous, it’s time consuming. After a presentation from Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce president Denni Bonetti on Feb. 6,Township council has agreed to examine the feasibility of supporting a Mobile Business Licence. In a brief video shown to council and the gallery, a bureaucrat on Vancouver Island called the current system “a tangle of administration.” A MBL would cut through the red tape, Bonetti told council. The local chamber is part of the Fraser Valley Chambers of Commerce which represents approximately 3,400 members conducting business in the Township, Langley City, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.
The majority of these members are small business owners who have few employees. “Many of them are mobile businesses that perform service in more than one municipality by moving from client to client,” Bonetti said, . “Each year we survey our membership and ask them to identify challenges to business growth and success, (and) each year government red tape is identified as a priority concern, including municipal business licensing processes,” she said. A MBL allows mobile businesses to operate across participating municipalities and regional districts, streamlines and simplifies the licensing process, reducing costs and making it easier to do business in the region and the province, she said. Several regions in the province have implemented inter-municipal business licences, and the video showed just how successful they are. In every one of them, the local government experienced greater compliance and the businesses benefited by reduced time and expense, and simplified expansion into new markets.

The Langley chamber has pointed out that the objective of the provincial government’s Jobs Plan is to “consult with local governments to expand mobile business licences, allowing employers to operate across municipal and provincial borders.” To avoid red tape, many business owners simply operate without a business licence. A MBL, Bonetti said, increases compliance. It doesn’t exist now because no one has asked the Township to put it in place, she added. There was also a presentation at Langley City Council on the same night. Councillor Gayle Martin first heard of the idea six or seven years ago “and thought it was a wonderful idea back then.” “I think it is the way to go but everybody has to be on board to do this,” she said. “But this is a good start, it is a great way to go.” Councillor Dave Hall’s initial reaction was of reluctance, feeling this might lead to less work for City residents. “It feels this might be raiding business in Langley City,” he said. But Quaale was quick to point out that this works both ways, and it would be a chance for businesses to gain work outside of the City as well. — with files from Gary Ahuja

Medal design down to two Entries both combine First Nations art work with cycling theme A major cycling event coming to the Fraser Valley this summer is looking for some help when it comes to handing out its hardware. The inaugural Prospera Valley GranFondo takes place July 22, with the race’s start and finish line in Fort Langley. The 160 km GranFondo route starts in Fort Langley and heads out along southern country roads to 0 Avenue, where it continues through Arnold, along the Sumas Prairie, and over Sumas
Mountain in Abbotsford. Riders then head back to Fort Langley through the Matsqui flats and Glen Valley. This route is for cyclists 19 and older. As the participants cross the finish line, each will receive a medal showcasing a unique First Nations design. “We are pleased to recognize the artists of Kwantlen First Nation and are honoured to have their artistry symbolize the accomplishment of our riders,” said Jeffrey Hansen-Carlson, the general manager of the Canadian Velo Event Management Society. The contest to come up with the winning medal design — which combines First Nations art work with the theme of cycling — has been narrowed down to two designs: one by Phyllis Atkins
and the other by Brandon Gabriel. “Before creating this piece, I first thought about what it would mean to have true passion to be a cyclist, and that cycling is more than just riding a bike,” explained Atkins. “It’s like flying but without wings. So that is why I chose the Eagle to represent the cyclists riding free in the wind.” “The Golden Eagle is the most revered icon in many North American Native cultures, in particular, to the Coast Salish culture,” Gabriel said. “The Golden Eagle is considered to be the Messenger to the Creator, because of its capabilities to fly to extreme altitudes.” The original images may be viewed at the Fort Langley National Historic Site until Feb. 29. Online voting between the two designs can be done by visiting www. ValleyGranFondo.com.

Canucks alumni coming to LEC The Vancouver Canucks alumni team will take on the Trinity Western alums on Feb. 25 at the Langley Events Centre. Bill Ranford, Doug Bodger and Larry Melnyk will suit up for the Canucks oldtimers, who will be coached by Langley’s Ryan Walter, president of the Abbotsford Heat. Walter is also a TWU alum. “This benefit game will bring in support and give our current Spartans team the chance to see the men who went before them and those who helped build this program,” said Spartans head coach Dwayne Lowdermilk, who returned to coach at Trinity Western three years ago after having coached the Spartans in 1988-89. “It is great to see the Trinity Western hockey alumni
getting excited about rejoining their teammates of past. This will be a great opportunity to show and share recognition for Trinity Western’s 50-year celebration and also the future of Spartans hockey.” There will be opportunities for the general public to get autographs from the Canucks alumni in attendance from 7:15 to 7:45 p.m. There will be a silent auction at the game, with funds going to Spartans scholarships, including items like a Vancouver Canucks team signed jersey and a pair of lower bowl tickets to the Canucks March 30 game against Dallas. The Langley City Fire Department will also be at the game and will be collecting money for the Fire Fighters Burn Fund. Half of
the money collected by the fire fighters will go to the Burn Fund and half will go towards Spartans hockey scholarships. Game time is 8 p.m. ••••• Despite being outshot 42-17, the Trinity Western Spartans managed a 3-3 tie against the first-place Simon Fraser Clan. The two B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League rivals squared off on Friday at the Langley Events Centre. The Spartans led 3-1 midway through the second, but the Clan scored twice to earn a point. Trinity Western goalie Tim Zwiers made 39 saves, including 20 in the third period alone. Brandon Long, last week’s BCIHL player of the week,
scored for the third straight game, with six goals in that span. Chris Harano and Trevor Beaupre had the other goals. The teams completed the home-and-home series on Saturday with the Clan scoring a decisive 8-3 victory. The win improved them to 15-1-5 while the Spartans fell to 4-11-4. Josh Stephenson had a pair while Beaupre had the other. ••••• Blair Johnston and Fiona Benson both posted personal bests and top two finishes in the 3,000m event at the University of Washington Open at Dempsey Indoor. Benson won the women’s event in a time of 9:54.76 while Johnston was second in the men’s race at 8:26.62. See more at www. langleytimes.com.

Daughters Terry, Nancy (Mike Girard) and sons Stephen (Heather), Phillip (Karen), his ten grandchildren and one great grandchild. Other surviving family, include recently married older sister Jean and elder brother Reg Christie, help keep the memories of Donâ€™s life alive. We will miss his humour, the twinkle in his eye, his â€œuniqueâ€? singing style and the essence of his being. His was a life well lived. Traveller of the world, sailor on the HMS Bounty in the Caribbean and Australia, gentlemen farmer in Langley and builder of the first family home in North Vancouver were but a few of the roles played in his varied life. A great career of 39 years with Finningâ€™s , enabled a myriad of experiences with many people from all walks of life. Whether dealing with the lawyers, the insurance man or the janitor, humbly Don would listen to everyoneâ€™s story. Whether he was in Prince George or Nelson selling a tractor, or in France buying a new helicopter for Finning, he was at his best when meeting new people, finding common ground and finding out about what they valued. Blessed by virtue of being born in Vancouver, enlisting at the end of World War II and enjoying the prosperity of the post war era, Don truly enjoyed a successful and fulfilling life. Our special thanks to caregiver, Maureen Marshall, Dr. Gary Nataros and staff at the Maple Hill Extended Care Facility in Langley. A Celebration of Life will be held March 3 in Langley.
